Fire Update and Fire Recovery Resources

We are thankful to our community for pulling together to help each other during the Napa fires; thankful for local businesses that provided free meals, accommodations and services to those affected by the fires; thankful for local officials who worked long hours to keep us informed, thankful for first responders from near and far who kept us safe; thankful for volunteers who were so generous with their time, and thankful for donors who were able to help financially! Recovery is going to take a while and the long-term impact of the fires are just now starting to be felt.  Lost wages, unemployment, and housing affordability affects many of the families we serve and remains a concern for the foreseeable future.

Community Resources for Children can help alleviate some of the financial and emotional burdens faced by families and child care providers during difficult times by:

  • Offering child care providers scholarships for health and safety training and working with them to establish emergency plans so that children under their care are safe during a fire, an earthquake, etc.
  • Giving child care providers support and resources about coping with a disaster or traumatic event so that they, in turn, can support the children under their care.
  • Assisting families who need help finding and paying for child care.
  • Offering FREE family activities and access to school readiness programs for children with little or no previous preschool experience.
