Southern California Wildfire Relief

Support Southern California Wildfire Relief.

Multiple wildfires are burning in California, threatening neighborhoods and forcing people to leave their homes.

This year follows one of Southern California’s largest and most destructive wildfire seasons, in which the Hill and Woolsey fires set more than 102,000 acres ablaze, killing three, destroying 1,500 structures and forcing close to 300,000 from their homes as mandatory evacuations were declared from Mailbu to Simi Valley. San Luis Obispo County saw incredible  damage, with six large fires springing to life in early June.

The immediate needs of those affected by the wildfires are great, and the recovery process will be long and difficult in communities throughout the state. The list below contains links to information and local resources for those affected as well as to organizations providing immediate and long-term relief. It will be updated as more information and resources are available.
