Counseling, other services available for fire victims

The Community Disaster Resource Center opened on Oct. 27, and it seems Angora fire victims are still discovering it.

The center, located in Pine Cone Plaza at 2494 Lake Tahoe Blvd., provides free services to those whose homes were destroyed or damaged in the Angora fire. Services include counseling and help with rebuilding, insurance claims, grant proposals and donations.

Center administrator Carrie Reiter said CDRC will serve as the fire victims’ central location for communication.

Four private businesses and Tahoe Youth & Family Services have donated free counseling services.

“Recovery is a process, and the community is there to support them,” Reiter said.

Fire victims are experiencing a wide range of emotions, Reiter observed. Some are frustrated, but others have begun recovering by tackling one obstacle at a time.

Reiter could use more volunteers to expedite the recovery process, she said. This would allow her to spend more time writing grant proposals to provide fire survivors with more resources.
