Marshall Fire Response and Recovery

Recovery Resources & Guidance

Anyone impacted by the Marshall Fire in need of assistance or support, please review the following list of 2-1-1 resources and organizations ready to serve you , dial 2-1-1 today to get help, or connect with Marshall ROC.

Marshall ROC (Restoring Our Community)

Marshall ROC is a coalition of community organizations, funders, and government agencies bound together by the common interest: Helping our neighbors, particularly those who are most in need. Marshall ROC is led by the community of participating organizations, in collaboration with government representatives. Many organizations in the surrounding communities offered their help after the Marshall Fire. Coordinating these efforts is challenging, but important. Marshall ROC is structured as a Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG), which is a nationally recognized, tried-and-true method for coordinating limited money, muscle, and materials among multiple organizations, on behalf of individuals and communities impacted by disaster.

The Marshall ROC Mission – Restoring Our Community
The mission of Marshall ROC is to support and empower individuals and households affected by the Marshall Fire and windstorm to lead their own recoveries by identifying needs and coordinating assistance on their behalf. Marshall ROC is a collaborative coalition of existing agencies and all Marshall ROC related services will be provided without regard to race, creed, color, gender, disability, religious or political affiliation, documentation status, or sexual orientation.

Disasters are, by their nature, overwhelming. If it wasn’t overwhelming, we’d call it an “inconvenience,” not a “disaster.” The Marshall Fire and Windstorm is overwhelming. Our neighbors lost hundreds of millions of dollars worth of property and belongings. So many individuals and organizations have rallied to help and it is inspiring to see how engaged and supportive the communities responding to this disaster have been. However, it is now clear the need is greater than the available resources. Marshall ROC and its participating organizations will work to help as many people as possible, while managing community expectations.

Marshall ROC consists of several committees, each with a coordinating mission:

  • Disaster Case Management Committee
  • Donation Management Committee
  • Mental Health, Emotional, and Spiritual Care Committee
  • Short-Term Housing Committee
  • Volunteer Management Committee
  • Unmet Needs Committee
