PREPAREDNESS

Learning from the Caldor Fire, we have taken the experience and have created disaster preparedness and recovery educational information, trainings and hands on workshops that will prepare the most vulnerable communities. 

Where to start

RESPONSE

In the event of an emergency or disaster, we have multiple programs that help evacuees and survivors through the uncertainty of the event during the uncertain and scary evacuation process.

RECOVERY

The long road to finding a new normal after a disaster is long and challenging. West Slope Foundation is here to provide individual assistance to survivors to help them along their journey.

You're not alone
