Disaster Response Efforts: Thousand Oaks and CA Wildfires
 
If any you are interested in providing services pro-bono to those affected by the recent fires in LA and Ventura County, please contact LACPA’s Disaster Response Chair, Jillian Pexa, Psy.D. (jillianpexa@gmail.com). Given that much of the area has been evacuated, this would likely be for those who have been displaced in other areas around LA and Ventura County, via teletherapy, or perhaps back in the affected areas in the next few weeks. There is also likely a need for professionals who might be able to go out to the area once it is stabilized to provide on-site work. Feel free to email if you’d like a copy of the list once it is compiled.
 
In addition to the above request, if you are an American Red Cross Volunteer and would like to make yourself available, please update your availability on the ARC Volunteer Connection. 
 
Below, you will find resources for those affected by the tragedy in Thousand Oaks:
 
Over 40 professionals have offered their services pro-bono to those affected by the shooting in Thousand Oaks. If you'd like a copy, or to be added to the list, please email LACPA’s Disaster Response Chair, Jillian Pexa (jillianpexa@gmail.com)

 

“Give an Hour”(www.giveanhour.org) is an organization that coordinates pro-bono services for those in need. They are now coordinating with those in need in Thousand Oaks, so please consider signing up. If you do sign up, please email Jillian Pexa, so she can inform our CPA Disaster Response Chair.

Regarding Victims of Crime services- The District Attorney’s office can streamline CalVCB applications for primary victims and their families.
