Service Spotlight: 

Since the 2017 Tubbs Fire, Catholic Charities has been at the forefront of a community-driven movement to bolster new systems better equipped to support survivors through disasters. Community support makes it possible for us to remain nimble throughout even the most dire of situations, such as the torrential rains of the 2023 Winter, the Humboldt County Earthquakes of 2022, the wildfires that have become the new norm in California, and more...

Alongside the Sonoma County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) and the County of Sonoma, our team is able to coordinate response as well as swiftly triage needs so the people who need it most can receive help navigating their situation.

We are thankful for the opportunity to bring our expertise to the collective.
