Charleys AngelsCharley’s Angels arrive after the 1st Responders, police, firemen and the like, have gone. They are trained and credentialed to enter restricted disaster sites to muck out houses, cut down trees, and generally help clean up the mess. They have been established and work in cooperation with the federal, state and local agency. There is a spiritual and emotional caregiver component so that the whole person can be assisted.
Fresh Start for PascoFresh Start for Pasco (FSP) is Long Term Recovery. Working with other agencies, we help with unmet needs. We come out after your insurance and/or FEMA have paid you and you have done your repairs and kept all your receipts. Whatever your unmet needs are after that, we try to help in finishing those repairs. We use professional contractors and or volunteers.
