It's been three months since the last flames were doused, but the Napa Fire Complex continues to affect thousands in our community.
As we pause to look back at the last 110 days, we are so grateful to the 20,000 generous donors, like you, who entrusted Napa Valley Community Foundation with charitable relief dollars.
With your support, 1,900 households in our community have received direct financial assistance and case management, and 15,000 more have received services, like temporary shelter, medical care, mental health therapy and food.

center we've launched to help individuals and families affected by the Napa Fire Complex. The
Napa Fire Recovery Center
is offering re-housing services for those who were made homeless as a result of the October wildfires, predominantly uninsured renters; and providing financial assistance to people who may not have lost their homes, but have nonetheless encountered economic hardship because of the temporary slow-down of the viticulture and hospitality economy in the region.
Recovering from a major disaster takes years, and we're in this for the long haul, because all of you are by our side.
Thank you once again for your generosity, and for your faith in Napa Valley Community Foundation.
