Survivors can find everything from counseling support to material needs. Some of the agencies present will be Shasta County Health and Human Services, Assessor’s Office, Resource Management, Housing Agency, California Department of Insurance, Franchise Tax Board, the VA., and many non-profit organizations who are eager to help.
