GEM | PFAAF Initiative
Global Empowerment Mission partnered wit Paradise Fire Adopt a Family and created programs to better assist the Camp Fire survivors in Butte County.
GEM | PFAAF is a disaster relief initiative that provides real time relief and support for those affected by the fire that burned down the town of Paradise and surrounding areas. It was created by Eric and Heather Lofholm on November 12, 2018. Originally, a Facebook group was created called Paradise Fire Adopt a Family. The group was created to pair a family in need with a family that needs help. The group has been extremely affective at helping people who were affected by the fire.
As Eric and Heather got to learn more about the needs of the 50,000+ people who became displaced or homeless from the fire the recognized the needs to bring monetary donations into the community. When you donate the focus on the funds will be directed into 4 areas:
Many people have been slipping through the cracks getting housing because they were underinsured or had no insurance. We are helping those families find housing solutions one family at a time.
Many workers lost their tools in the fire and are unable to work until they have their tools back. We are putting workers back to work one worker at a time.
Many people are suffering PTSD, trauma and other mental health issues because they lost their homes, pets, jobs, and in some cases loved ones from the fire. We are helping get professionally therapy to people one person at a time.
When you donate you are helping people who are in need right now and in many cases have lost everything.
