🚨NOTICE. PLEASE SHARE!!🚨 Some residents may have seen the DRAFT of the Immediate Needs Cash Distribution Application form on the LTRO website yesterday or earlier today. This DRAFT was inadvertently published on the site as we were collaborating with the LTRO Board and Pine Creek residents to finalize the process, and preparing to launch the form as quickly as possible. PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES FOR THE ERROR AND CONFUSION‼️
THE GOOD NEWS: The final application form will be ready next week and will be distributed via the website, Facebook, and email (if we have your address). There will be hard copies available at the LTRO office, the Malden and Pine City Food Bank, the Malden Library, and the Town of Malden office.
Thank you for sharing this news with other residents, and for your patience.

We encourage community members who may want grief counseling to reach out for assistance. The Washington State Mental Health Crisis Line serving eastern Washington is 888 544-9986 (24/7/365). This service is entirely free.
The 24/7 hotline for Pullman-based Palouse River Counseling is 509 334-1133. Use of the hotline is free of charge. Counseling appointments, however, will require use of medical insurance or direct payment.
Long-Term Recovery Effort
A multitude of generous individuals and organizations have come together to assist and help unite the residents of the Malden and Pine City communities in the aftermath of the Babb Road Fire on September 7, 2020. In the wake of the destructive path that the wildfire left behind, the community is coming together to rebuild.
Contact us if you have questions about the recovery effort. Email us if you would like to meet with a Case Manager.
Stop by the office if you need to talk to someone.
LTRO Board Member, Janell Turner, will be staffing the phone and office on Fridays, between the hours of 8am and 10am if you would like to visit in person.
