ROC (Rebuilding Our Community) Sonoma County

March 22nd, 2018 by Staff

Mission Statement: ROC Sonoma County is a collaborative network that addresses the long-term recovery needs related to the disaster of the 2017 Sonoma County Fires.

From a statement issued by ROC on 03/15/18:

Our Story: ROC Sonoma County grew out of the catalytic efforts of VOAD, FEMA, CA OES, etc. who, based upon experience with communities facing the impact of disasters understand the resources needed to promote long-term recovery for a community. The purpose of ROC Sonoma County is to establish and maintain a network within and on behalf of faith-based, non-profit, governmental, business and other organizations and agencies, which will provide for a coordinated recovery effort for the Sonoma County Fires.

Our Focus: ROC Sonoma County will coordinate the management of the long-term recovery to all Sonoma County community members affected by the Sonoma County Fires who do not have adequate personal resources for basic needs as a result of the disaster.

Our Committees – Besides a Steering Committee, the work of ROC is distributed among ten committees.

Recovery Resources, Sites and Services

Agencies participating in ROC SC will meet with clients needing assistance to conduct a basic triage to understand long term recovery needs and resources. Triage means asking for basic demographic information and a brief set of questions to assess the impact of the fire and eligibility for case management support. If eligible for case management, one will be assigned from a ROC partner agency. If a survivor does not need case management, ROC SC agencies will provide basic needs support and case work as needed and available.

To access long term recovery support and triage please contact the following agencies:

Catholic Charities of Santa Rosa

987 Airway Court in Santa Rosa


Drop in hours Wednesday at 3pm, Fridays at 11am
