WOOLSEY FIRE RECOVERY INFORMATION 

For Woolsey Fire Recovery Resources: Please visit the LA Region Long Term Recovery Group site at https://www.laregionltrg.org/ for information.

 

If you were impacted by the Hill or Woolsey fires and have ongoing recovery needs, you may be able to be assisted by a Disaster Case Manager. The LA Region Long Term Recovery Group (LAR LTRG) is a coalition of over 80 community organizations and local government offices dedicated to supporting the long term recovery needs of people impacted by the Woolsey Fire. To request disaster case management assistance from the members of this group, please fill out the form below and you will be contacted.

At this time we can't provide a timeline for their follow up contact with you, but they will reach out as quickly as capacity allows. In the meantime you can always call 2-1-1 (24/7) for referrals to resources that address your immediate needs (not disaster case management). Please note that for data security purposes, 211 LA call operators will not have access to view your form submittal or status, as the information is sent directly to the disaster case management agencies.

During disasters, people can dial 2-1-1 instead of 9-1-1 with non-emergency questions, such as evacuation areas and shelters. After disasters, people can call 2-1-1 for disaster recovery resources, including donation information, health and human services, crisis counseling, or referrals to other support and recovery services. 

How to reach us:

  • Inside LA County (24/7, 240 languages): dial 2-1-1 from any phone
  • Outside LA County or not connecting via 2-1-1: dial (800) 339-6993
  • Deaf or hard of hearing: dial (800) 660-4026 (or 7-1-1)
  • Online: live chat at 211la.org/fire. Click to Chat

During and after disasters, the most valuable donation you can make is often donating money to official organizations such as the Red Cross and United Way (be wary of unofficial online donations), because it provides the most flexibility for purchasing items needed for disaster victims.

Check before dropping off any donation goods to shelters or first responders, as they can become overwhelmed with donations they can't use.
