When the wildfires erupted in our precious counties and evacuation orders took place, hundreds of evacuees urgently needed help and hope.

Catholic Charities is honored to serve people affected by the wildfires in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties.

With support from Bishop Danny, our Board of Directors, CCUSA, and a group of amazing volunteers, we are providing wildfire relief to those whose homes were in the evacuation areas. Our dedicated staff and volunteers provide service with care and compassion to help evacuees who urgently needed financial aid to purchase basic needs.

THANKS to our donors and foundation grants, we are here to help! We provide assistance by phone, email, using window slots, and brief appointments.

In serving the most vulnerable in our communities during these times, our wildfire relief services are currently focused on families and individuals who:

  • reside in Santa Cruz County or Monterey County
  • whose home was in the evacuation areas.
  • are in need of financial aid to purchase basic need items
