Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. 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.

Kids Central has many engaged and compassionate people working together to make a difference in the community. They work so very hard to educate the community to stop instances of child abuse and neglect. Kids Central looks to protect children and keep families intact by providing services in the least restrictive setting. Removing a child from their home and placing them with strangers is very traumatic and has a lasting impact on the child. Kids Central understands that human services is often difficult to deliver and they work hard to provide families support in temporary situations that, if left unaddressed, could lead to abuse and neglect.
