CAMP FIRE RECOVERY SERVICE CENTER

Immediately following our Camp Fire relief mission, Tzu Chi USA initiated its mid-to-long-term recovery services to individuals and families affected by the Camp Fire.

These services include disaster case management, housing support, medical outreach, educational programs, humanistic cultural events, spiritual and emotional support, and resource referrals.

For Camp Fire’s long-term recovery, Tzu Chi USA pays extra attention to individuals and families in Magalia, Concow, and Yankee Hill as well as families who have relocated to Redding, as residents of these areas are far from cities closer to Paradise and have very limited access to resources and support.
