Through our Roadmap to Recovery program you will find guidance and support relevant to the Woolsey Fire. 

Take care of yourself and your family.  Save all your reciepts for expenses due to losing the use of your home during evacuation and after, if your home is uninhabitable - they should be reimbursable under your "Additional Living Expense" Coverage.

Our main focus is on helping you navigate your insurance claim toward a full, fair and prompt settlement.  We also offer guidance on debris removal, temporary living arrangements, government aid, construction issues, hiring professional help, and deciding how and if you will repair, rebuild or buy a replacement home.


Upcoming Roadmap to Recovery Workshops:


Navigating the "Dwelling" portion of your claim
Saturday, Janyary 26th, 3pm-5pm
Malibu Public Library
23519 West Civic Center Way, Malibu


Note: We are also planning a workshop in Thousand Oaks for the morning of Saturday, January 26th.  Please check back for more details or email to recieve email updates.

Please watch the First Steps After a Disaster video and make use of all the help our non-profit offers.  That includes videos of our past Roadmap to Recovery workshops in other wildfire areas, a library of tipssamples and toolsguidance from past disaster survivors, and answers to individual questions from insurance claim and legal profession expert volunteers via our Ask an Expert forum.   


If your home was spared but was exposed to extreme heat and smoke, we offer specialized guidance on insurance claim issues related to proper cleaning, inspecting for damage, restoring healthy indoor air quality and repairing obvious as well as hidden damage.  If your home has been damaged or destroyed, we are very sorry.
