In the wake of the devastation caused by the California Wild Fires, NAATP is working on reaching out to all of our members in the impacted areas. The National Association wants to identify treatment facilities needing support in response to damage due to the fires. Within our membership, there are resources to help patients and staff at centers that have been impacted. We hope to connect treatment providers needing support with member organizations that have available beds and resources to help facilitate continuity of care for patients, and provide a safe place for staff members.
In the meantime here is a list of Organizations to donate to in order to immediately help:
American Red Cross workers have set up temporary shelters and food sites across the state.
The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation supports the first responders fighting on the frontlines of the wildfires. They are currently requesting donations to put towards hydration backpacks for the firefighters.
The CCF Wildfire Relief Fund supports immediate recovery efforts for major California wildfires, as well as long-term preparedness efforts.
The United Way of Greater Los Angeles is partnering with United Way of Ventura County to collect donations for its its Disaster Relief Fund.
The Entertainment Industry Foundation is raising money through its Fire Relief Fund.
The Humane Society of Ventura County is accepting animals evacuating from the Hill and Woolsey fires. You can also donate directly to the organization or purchase items like food and toys through their Amazon wish list.
As an association, we are committed to doing what we can to support treatment providers working to rebuild and recover from the storms. If you need support, or know a facility that does, please contact us at email@example.com or by calling Membership Development Officer Nikki Soda at 303.550.9982.
