More than four months after the Camp Fire, resources that were immediately available almost seem to be gone. Volunteers are few. Donations have slowed. Shelters and Disaster Recovery Centers have shuttered. But there is help out there if you need it. That’s the bottom line.

Last week Butte County announced a new program that is helping those affected by the Camp Fire connect with whatever they need: whether it's navigating FEMA paperwork, finding housing or getting connected with someone who can counsel you through depression.


Officials from the California Children and Families Commission have sent 20 caseworkers to assist Butte County fire survivors. North State Public Radio’s Marc Albert talked with county public information officer Casey Hatcher to learn more about the new case management program.


Case Management services are located at:

Butte County Employment Center

24455 Carmichael Dr., Chico, CA 95928.

Hours of Operation: 8:00am - 5:00pm

Days of Operation: Monday – Friday


Camp Fire survivors can also call 2-1-1 in Butte County to learn about resources.
