MAGALIA, Calif. - The Magalia Community Church and Resource Center has been a hub for people affected by the Camp Fire. 

Almost a year later, hundreds of people are still stopping by. The church said, last month, almost 4,000 people came through the center to pick up food, water, clothes, furniture, and using the shower and laundry services.

More than 300 of those people who stopped by were first-timers.

Action News Now spoke to Shell Morely, from the Magalia Community Church about their services. 

"We've had lines that are all the way back to the tents," Morely said. "Somedays we've had 1,000 people come through."

A previous resident of Paradise, Kevin MacDonald also commented on this topic.

"People need it, people are still lost," MacDonald said. "People don't know what's going on. It hurts me deeply, it's like I'm lost. I don't know what's going on half the time."

The Magalia Community Church began counseling services on Wednesday, Oct. 16. There will also be a free health clinic day for survivors on Sunday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
