The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Women's shelter was there for me in the late 70's and mid 80's. One afternoon you had a guest speaker (Norma) how she herself had once been in our shoes. She now had a great job and life. I left your shelter and went to Norma's job she placed me in a business school the next day, it was difficult my ex beating me daily. I finally left him and went into hiding. When I graduated I was given a job at that Business School. I could never repay you for my dream come true. Nowadays I work 3 days out of the week at a Law Office and my weekends are mostly free. My husband thinks it's a great idea. I would love to help out at night answering phones ect. Again, thank you for giving me a warm bed ,food and most importantly self-worth.
