Journey to a New Normal

Understanding the steps you need to take after you have lost your home from a disaster, is often frustrating and causes a lot of wasted time while you figure out what needs to be done. WSF is here to help you through every step of the recovery phase after a disaster. Regardless if you have insurance or not, we have programs that can assist you. 

Start Here

WSF was formed to help the survivors of the Caldor Fire in 2021. Based on personal experiences and lessons learned we have developed the below programs to help disaster survivors. All evacuees and survivors must first fill out the Application for Assistance. Only one application is needed per household. If you, or a member of your household, have already submitted an application, please continue to the programs below.
