If you were impacted by the Elk – Oregon Road Fire, we encourage you to set up a case with a case worker even if you believe you do not qualify for assistance at this time. New funding or other opportunities could become available that you are eligible for, and your case worker can make you aware of those if you have a case open.

Together We Are Elk Strong

You are not alone, whether you have always figured it out by yourself, built your place with blood, sweat and tears, or bought your place and perfected it, what you face is daunting. You may not know where to start, or you may have a plan laid out and are frustrated with endless red tape. You are not alone.

Each of us has a story from August 18th, 2023. Some are traumatic stories, full of fear, hurry, and loss. Others are of anxious evacuation preparations and waiting. We all felt the frustration of not knowing more. We were in it together. You saw it in the response. People at the ready with trailers, on the ground with equipment, or at home with open doors. You saw it in the relief effort. An outpouring of clothes, food, a place to stay, and meals.

In the wake of the fire, we belong to a club no one wants membership to, but that connects us to other communities, people, and resources. ElkStrong is one of those resources and we are here to help you build again. We are a group of Elk citizens under the umbrella of the Spokane Region Long Term Recovery Group. We will work to find organizations that that have money, manpower & materials to assist in Elk recovery. We know that this next step is a long process and will take endurance, patience and collaboration.

We are here to help. Together we are Elk Strong!
