November 2018: As you may know, California is experiencing a devastating wave of wildfires that are continuing day by day. From the Camp Fire in the northern part of the state near Chico, to the Woolsey fire in Ventura and LA counties, as well as several other smaller fires, wildfires are consuming hundreds of thousands of acres of natural areas as well as homes and businesses. The scope of the losses is staggering: thousands of structures have been destroyed, lives have been lost, communities have been completely consumed by the flames.
As a mental health provider with program locations in these areas, we are acutely and sorrowfully aware of how our employees, the people we serve, and these communities are being affected by the fires. We encourage you to help in any way you can.
