UNITED WE FIGHT FOR THE
OF EVERY PERSON IN
On September 8, 2020, the Almeda and Obenchain Fires ripped through our Valley destroying 2,605 residences, 198 commercial buildings and 6 public buildings. United Way of Jackson County set up a recovery and rebuilding fund on September 8. Due to the remarkable generosity of our community, the fund has raised more than $2 million and we have a goal this year of $3 million.
The first round of intermediate funding is closed. Watch this space for future opportunities.
United Way of Jackson County recieved funding from Jackson County and the Jackson County Commissioners to provide assistance for rent relief, utilities, car repairs, etc. The County has provided $2 million in funding.
United Way of Jackson County has exhausted that COVID-19 funding. There is still help available in our community. Please check in with the following for rent assistance:
