Re: Post-wildfire report on nonprofit services: mental health a critical need, services to most vulnerable citizens impacted

Thanks Lena! This data is surprising and sad (to me) in that it appears that the most vulnerable populations had the greatest negative impact in terms of receiving services during the post-fire period. Karen

Thanks for posting this Lena! I'm not surprised that agencies literally prioritized "bricks & mortar" projects over less tangible outcomes such as mental health. Still, it's sad that we do so. The data on populations served is surprising: I get that persons who lost their home in the fires might have been persons previously more likely to give to causes than to seek assistance from them. Still, you would expect that some who lost homes would be seniors, veterans, LGBTQ, women, etc., so...

Thank you, Lena, for sharing this real-time response survey. The level of suffering, from those who're now homeless, to those who received less services due to service providers stretched so thin, is staggering. Mental health awareness, education, and implementation cross-sector is so critically imperative. The suffering permeates through all those impacted. Your 2018 Wildfire Response Survey highlights the paramount community needs and frames this reality in a succinct, profound way.

Lena Hoffman ·
At the end of 2017, Community Foundation of Sonoma County and Napa Valley Community Foundation enlisted the Center for Effective Philanthropy to conduct a survey of local nonprofit organizations about the impacts of the wildfires on the people they serve and on their organizational capacity to provide services in response.

Trial by Fire: MARC Sites Collaborate on Trauma-Informed Disaster Response

Clare Reidy ·
By @Anndee Hochman During a December 2017 convening in Philadelphia, several leaders from Mobilizing Action for Resilient Communities (MARC) realized they had more in common than a passion for building resilience in their communities. They all hailed from places that had recently been scorched or flooded by natural disasters: wildfires in California and the Columbia River Gorge, hurricanes in Florida, the lingering residue of 2012’s post-tropical cyclone Sandy in the Northeast.
