    $50,000 Grant Awarded to Help Fire Victims 

    Conejo Compassion Coalition Assisting Those Affected By The Devastating Fires In Ventura And Los Angeles Counties. 

    Thousand Oaks, CA (May 9, 2019)Even with insurance settlements, FEMA grants, SBA and other loans, Those impacted byf last year's devastating fires continue to struggle.  

    When the homes of friends and colleagues were damaged and, in some cases, completely destroyed when two fires raged through parts of Ventura and Los Angeles County in November of 2018, the Conejo Compassion Coalition immediately stepped in. This local 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation provided multiple forms of relief to families impacted by the tragedy. Support ranged from gift cards and cash grants to helping a family purchase a trailer to live in after their home was leveled. Even months later, some families are still fighting to recover. 

    Recently, the California Community Foundation awarded the Conejo Compassion Coalition a $50,000 grant to continue their work in support of those affected by the fires. This grant, together with other funds raised by the organization, will be used to help with long term recovery.  

    Survivors of the Hill and Woolsey Fires, who have outstanding needs that are still not being met, are encouraged to contact www.ConejoCompassion.com to see if they qualify for financial assistance.
