Long-Term Recovery Effort
A multitude of generous individuals and organizations have come together to assist and help unite the residents of Malden and Pine City 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.
On the ground since shortly after the wildfire, United Methodist Committee on Relief-trained Disaster Case Managers (DCMs) have helped survivors connect with resources for their immediate needs, for interim and long-term housing support, and to identify recovery goals. Faith-based and non-profit recovery organizations, local funders and resource agencies have supported the DCM process though the Pine Creek Community Restoration Long Term Recovery Organization’s (PCCR LTRO’s) Unmet Needs Roundtable since early 2021.
Although Disaster Case Management concludes its work on June 17, 2022, the PCCR LTRO continues to move forward in supporting Malden and Pine City recovery.
