In addition to providing speakers for public forums throughout the wildfire-impacted areas, United Policyholders is sponsoring a regular series of educational meetings in Rancho Bernardo titled "Roadmap to Recovery." The series is a collaborative effort with the Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church and 2003 Cedar Fire survivors participating in the United Policyholders' Volunteer Mentor program. The educational meetings focus on the full range of post-fire recovery issues relating to construction, insurance, mortgages, and emotional health. Seminars are scheduled on select Thursdays beginning at 7:00 p.m. at at Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church,17010 Pomerado Road. All meetings include insurance interest group "breakout" sessions facilitated by a United Policyholders volunteer. For further information, contact Outreach Coordinator Karen Reimus at Karen@uphelp.org. To view the Power Point slide shows from past meetings, visit www.rbcpc.org.
