Petaluma NONPROFITS STEP UP
Petaluma has become a safe haven for victims of the fires, with our local nonprofits providing crucial services not just during the crisis but in the weeks and months to come.
Help them continue their efforts by donating to PCF's Fire Response Fund today.
Mentor Me served as an emergency shelter for upward of 178 evacuees, including many Spanish-speaking families, and managed an enormous influx of donated supplies and volunteers. They’re now providing financial and household support to the many evacuees staying with their mentee families and working with local school districts to serve displaced students who will be attending school in Petaluma.
Petaluma Peoples Services Center (PPSC) has partnered with SHARE Sonoma County to solicit, match, and manage home shares for individuals and families displaced by the fires. They are seeking homeowners and renters with an extra bedroom, garage space, couch or second dwelling unit who are willing to offer short-term housing for our fire victims. Placements are not limited to Sonoma or Napa counties. If you are in need of housing or want to provide housing, please contact SHAREFire@petalumapeople.org or call 707.765.8488 and ask for SHAREFire, ext. 126.
Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County visited all of the Petaluma-based shelters just after the crisis to distribute books to evacuees, especially children. They will customize their outreach in the months ahead to serve those schools and programs most impacted by the fires.
Help Petaluma Community Foundation support the fire relief and recovery efforts of our local Petaluma nonprofits by donating to PCF's Fire Response Fund.
Community Foundation of Sonoma County has launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to support the medium- to long-term needs of nonprofit organizations providing direct services to fire victims in our greater Sonoma County community.
