Disaster Recovery in Lake County

NCO is committed to supporting the needs of fire survivors from the devastating Lake County wildfires since 2015.

Since 2015, NCO has been collecting donations to assist fire survivors following the aftermath of each fire. NCO has then in turn provided resources, grants and services to fire survivors. We disburse those funds to fire survivors through an application process. Currently, NCO is administering assistance through our disaster case management process, providing support and technical assistance to fire survivors through the rebuilding process, and utlizing AmeriCorps service members to assist with rebuilds.


Have you been affected by a recent wildfire? Financial Assistance is Available.

In collaboration with community partners, NCO connects survivors to resources through disaster case management. Through the disaster case management process, many diverse needs are identified. Disaster case managers work with clients to address those needs and connect the client to available resources.

Disaster Case Managers can help with developing a recovery plan that can include help with utility payments, rent, linkage with grants, loans and funding to complete a rebuild or move-in plan. If you are someone who has lost a home in Lake County, consider contacting a case manager today.

Fire Survivors may contact Disaster Case Manager Angelina Fagundo at (707) 998-8642 or email afagundo@ncoinc.org or begin their applications below:


NCO Disaster Relief Fund

More than 50% of Lake County has burned since 2012. Many residents need long term support and assistance. Consider giving today!

The Disaster Relief Fund seeks to assist those facing hardship by providing monetary aid to people who have suffered a direct loss in Lake or Mendocino Counties as a result of a disaster.

In 2015, NCO worked with other area organizations in response to the Rocky, Jerusalem, and Valley Fires which burned in Lake County. In 2016, NCO re-opened the fund in response to the Clayton Fire, also in Lake County. In 2017, the fund opened again for those impacted by the Redwood Fire in Mendocino County and the Sulphur Fire in Lake County.

The fund will now remain open to support long term recovery for those who have been affected by a disaster in both Lake and Mendocino counties.

Team Lake County

Team Lake County (TLC) is the official Long Term Recovery Group formed as a response to the Valley Fire, a wildfire that devastated Lake County in September of 2015.  The Long Term Recovery Group is a framework for coordinating volunteer organizations active in a disaster to minimize duplication while working to satisfy the unmet needs of disaster survivors.

TLC's mission is to assist in identifying unmet needs of those affected by disaster, and to coordinate access to resources that would provide relief. TLC is volunteer-led, and is made up of local, state and national organizations and government entities who are coordinating to help Lake County recover from the recent fires.

As a TLC partner and in collaboration with other community partners, NCO connects survivors to resources through disaster case management. Disaster Case Managers can help with developing a recovery plan that can include help with utility payments, rent, linkage with grants, loans and funding to complete a rebuild or move-in plan. 

NCO is an active member and fiscal sponsor of TLC.  To learn more about TLC click here.
