Campfire Connect is a collaboration between United Way of Northern California and American Red Cross to provide mental health and wellness services to survivors of the Camp Fire. This service is available for any Camp Fire survivor, regardless of where they currently live. United Way will pay the therapist directly for up to 8 sessions per person. Survivors must register to participate in this program by February 19th, 2021.
