Our Mission

We support communities as they RECOVER from fire, REBUILD their lives, and REIMAGINE a more resilient future through prevention, innovation, and facilitating the connection from one fire-impacted community to another.

Our work is driven by the central question: “What do you need and how can we help?”

After the Fire: Recover. Rebuild. Reimagine. is proud to lead collaborative efforts of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to fill the immense unmet needs that otherwise would fall on the backs of our most affected and financially vulnerable residents. We strongly believe the fire affected communities need and deserve our full attention until every family is home.

How We Do It: Collaboration

Rebuilding wildfire disaster communities of the American West in a way that is better, safer, greener, and faster will depend upon building coalitions, fostering stronger connections across sectors, and ensuring we use data that is vetted and reliable.

We engage in advocacy with our public sector partners by providing vetted and accurate information and supporting community leaders as they speak up for the unique needs their communities face. From podcasts to publications, seminars to workshops, we develop and share current views and best practices for solving collective challenges, and leverage partnerships as we address the gaps in support and resources that emerge post disaster.

How We Do It: Advocacy

We support our region in partnership with elected and non-government officials at the state and federal level to ensure our economically vital region receives the necessary government funding for our region to recover and rebuild.
