Update 5:36 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 - There are only a few days for Camp Fire survivors with unmet needs to meet in person with interviewers from World Renew Disaster Response Services volunteers. There is, however, a phone number to call so survivors can communicate their unmet needs if they can not come to a site in person by the end of the week.
Organizers said on Thursday, Jan. 23, they will be in Oroville at the Hope Center between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. It is located at 1950 Kittrick.
On Friday, Jan. 24, they will be meeting with survivors in Gridley at Orchard Hospital from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The address of the hospital is 240 Spruce Street.
The data derived from the assessments is needed to help gauge the extent of unmet needs. This will help with future grant applications from the county and other agencies that serve survivors.
As of Monday evening World Renew officials said they had assessments from 288 families. On Tuesday they met with approximately 70 more people in Chico and Concow.
People should come to the sites in person with their FEMA number in hand at least an hour before closing time to make sure there is time to fill out the assessment.
If people can not make it in person, they can call (440) 462-5874 and leave their contact info. World Renew representatives will then call back in February for phone intakes.
BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Camp Fire Long Term Recovery Group is partnering with World Renew Disaster Response Services to help find the households with unmet needs, over a year after the Camp Fire.
For about two weeks, volunteers from World Renew will be at multiple locations throughout Butte County for fire survivors to come in and seek assistance.
The Camp Fire Long Term Recovery Group said the data gathered during these sessions will be critical to securing more resources for the community.
Both groups say this is not connected with aid received from FEMA, though people should bring their FEMA ID number with them if they do have one.
If you have any questions, do call 440-462-5874 or visit www.campfirelongtermrecovery.org.
