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.

Catholic Community Services (CCS) is a faith-based and values-driven outreach of the Catholic Church in Western Washington. Under the leadership of Archbishop Brunett, and the Board of Trustees, our staff and volunteers answer the Gospel call to loving and compassionate service with particular concern for the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death and for the dignity of every human person. The workers of CCS and AHA come from many faith traditions and actively respond to the call of the Catholic Church in Western Washington to serve those most in need. We believe... ... every child should grow up in a safe, loving and nurturing environment. ... the elderly should be able to live in security and dignity. ... healthy family life should be affirmed and supported in our communities. ... in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially the poor and most vulnerable. ... in joining with others to change the systems which oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering. ... employees and volunteers should work in an environment which offers respect, teamwork and excellence. ... in all these things for all people, whatever their color, whatever language they speak or however they worship.
A non-profit organization that serves those in need throughout King County.
