The Salvation Army is transitioning from its Early Recovery Program to long-term recovery services for Camp Fire survivors. Salvation Army officials say starting Monday April 1st, any new clients seeking assistance or returning clients, who have no prior appointments scheduled and are in need of additional financial assistance, will be directed to call the Butte County 2-1-1.
During the long-term recovery stage, the Salvation Army will work with other agencies to provide assistance to survivors and move them into the recovery process. Additionally, the Salvation Army will coordinate with local, state, and federal entities to develop and execute long-term strategic disaster recovery plans.
In a four month span, from last December through this month, the Salvation Army has supported more than 600 households with early-recovery assistance. Over $500,000 has been distributed to meet immediate needs, including clothing, construction materials, furniture, household materials, rental assistance, medical needs, and other services - according to a press release from the Salvation Army.
