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.

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 (PCCRLTRO’s) Unmet Needs Roundtable since early 2021.

The PCCRLTRO continues to support the recovery and rebuilding goals of Pine City and Malden residents when DCMs concluded their work on June 17, 2022..
