Getting Help

Forest Recovery After Fire

If you are a survivor of the 2013 Black Forest Fire and need assistance with the recovery and rebuilding process, we are here to help! Neighbors of Black Forest have always been eager to help one another, and this tragedy only strengthened that. Black Forest Together organizes groups of hard working volunteers to go out and assist with the restoration efforts. Whether you have a work project, need volunteers, or would like to request the assistance of our wood chipper, Black Forest Together is here to help. 

Request Volunteer Help

If you are in need and would like to request a volunteer team to help you with your recovery efforts, please Contact Us or visit the Black Forest Together Resource Center. At the Resource Center, you can pick up information, ask questions, or just visit with your neighbors. Resource Center volunteers are your Black Forest neighbors: We’d love to see you! If you can’t stop in, call us or email us your questions or ideas. 

Please Note: If you need assistance, the Resource Center needs plenty of time to find the right volunteers. Please contact us as soon as you think you might need help – even before you have a date in mind. Our work project manager will meet with you to discuss your needs and determine what type of volunteers can get the job done.
