Camp Fire Recovery Efforts

Golden Valley Bank Community Foundation has been committed to the recovery efforts in the aftermath of the Camp Fire. During the 3rd quarter of 2021, $25,000 was donated to the Camp Fire Collaborative Unmet Needs Roundtable. The Unmet Needs Roundtable is a collaborative group of funders that meet on a monthly basis to review cases that have been fully vetted and presented by case managers with the goal of providing long term, sustainable housing solutions for Camp Fire Survivors that have fallen through the cracks in other programs. This is the last resort for these individuals. There are many success stories of families that have been given a new start through the efforts of the Unmet Needs Roundtable.
