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.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The IRC provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are welcomed by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They step off the plane with next to nothing but their dignity, hope and determination. In Dallas and many other regional offices across the country, the IRC helps them rebuild their lives.
My experience as a Family Mentor to a Refugee Family has been amazing. I have had the opportunity to meet some extraordinary people through this volunteering venture. The staff at IRC are caring knowledeable individuals, who answer my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I can highly recommend volunteering for IRC. It will prove to be a heart lifting experience.
