Tammy Mezera and her pup Nel are currently waiting for completion of their Bus Home.
She had just relocated from Illinois when the Camp Fire hit. A Walmart parking lot became an impromptu campground for her and scores of shellshocked survivors. “Without Nel, I would have been lost. We face the long haul, the fire, the rebuilding and new friendships together. It’s one step at a time in the rebuilding process. It’s not for the faint of heart. No individual alone can maneuver through this type of crisis.” She’s built a small community since the fi re, people who help buffer the stress of meeting day-to-day challenges. A small leaky trailer provides temporary shelter while she ponders her next steps.
We've been able to provide some initial assistance including funds and supplies to support their recovery. Even better, we hope to be donating a retrofitted shuttle bus to Tammy so she and Nel can have a safe, water proof shelter while she sorts out her next move.
