BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte Strong Fund announced Wednesday that it is providing a grant of $232,000 to the Butte County Office of Education to help address child trauma as a result of the Camp Fire.

The request will fund counselors to be deployed at schools to support students and staff from January to June of the current school year. 

It will also cover the Office of Education's request to provide one full-time coordinator to oversee mental health services as schools throughout Butte County. The coordinator will also be responsible for developing a strategic plan spanning 2-3 years that will support ongoing assistance to districts and schools post-funding. 

“This grant to provide direct mental health care to children impacted by the Camp Fire is just the first of many investments we will be making to support the overall healing and recovery of our children,” said Alexa Benson-Valavanis, president and CEO of the North Valley Community Foundation. “Our communities’ children have been and will remain a top priority of the Butte Strong Fund. They each deserve a chance to truly heal.”

The Butte Strong Fund was created in early January with a partnership between the North Valley Community Foundation, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and the Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund.
