Northern California Residents Disaster Assistance

Residents of Butte, Lake, Mendocino and Yuba who suffered damage or losses from the devastating fires that began October 8, 2017 and continue to burn, can now register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), if they are able to do so.
The amendment to the presidential disaster declaration of October 10, 2017 now makes federal assistance available to eligible individuals and business owners in a total of six northern California counties: Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba.
Survivors who primarily reside in one of the six designated counties can apply online at or by phone at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may call 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
Applicants will be asked for the following information:
•    Social Security number
•    Address of the damaged primary residence
•    Description of the damage
•    Information about insurance coverage
•    A current contact telephone number
•    An address where they can receive mail
•    Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit of funds
Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for:
•    Temporary housing
•    Essential home repairs

Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available for businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters. Disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries.

FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Registering with FEMA is required for federal aid, even if a survivor has registered with another disaster-relief organization, such as the American Red Cross.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.

Become a CASA Volunteer!

NVCSS CASA will be holding two CASA training sessions in early 2018.
Training in Shasta County [Redding] begins on Wednesday, January 10 and will be held in the CASA Center at NVCSS at 2400 Washington Avenue.
Butte County training [Chico] begins on Thursday, February 1 and will take place at
our office in Chico.

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!
