"Our long-term recovery group started meeting at the end ofearly November of last year and the goal of the long-term recovery group is to bring together community sponsors who will assist fire recovery individuals in their recovery... So the idea would be that a fire survivor may have some insurance or no insurance, they may have different ways to get funding available to solve their problem..." -Leigh Madsen, Long-term Recovery Group Member
Long-term recovery groups are created by the community after a disaster to help bring everyone back to secure housing.
