    Butte County Schools Long-Term Disaster Recovery Fund

    Butte County Schools Long-Term Disaster Recovery Fund

    The BCOE Schools Long-Term Disaster Recovery Fund serves students and schools impacted by the Butte County fires or other disasters. Many students and staff members lost everything during the devastating Camp Fire of 2018 and the North Complex West Zone Fire of 2020. Families miss the security of their homes, beds, and the traditions their families had during the holidays. By donating to the BCOE Schools Long-Term Disaster Recovery Fund, donors help schools and families rebuild, restore normal activities, and celebrate the holidays this season.

    Early Childhood Mental Health, Learning, and Recovery Fund

    Early Childhood Mental Health, Learning, and Recovery Fund

    The Center for learning and resilience is working to build healing services for thriving families. Butte County recognized the need for family-centered healing long before the Camp Fire in 2018. A series of natural disasters from 2017-2020 followed by the COVID-19 pandemic has left an already traumatized community and the future for many young children in a vulnerable state. A combination of social determinants of health including poverty, childhood trauma, and adverse childhood experiences have added to already complex rural circumstances for families that require better coordination of resources to help families.
    The Butte County Office of Education initiated The Center For Learning and Resilience (The Center) in 2017 with a team of local professionals who envisioned a place for children, families, and community as an answer to solving this complex problem in Butte County. The collective Center partnerships embrace the opportunity to increase resiliency and foster the self-righting nature in all Butte County residents. The goal of the North Valley Community Foundation, Early Childhood Mental Health, Learning, and Recovery Fund is to develop a trauma-responsive community-based Center for young children, their families, and professionals working with them, especially in response to the collective community trauma in Butte County.

Together, we can ensure that all children in Butte County have access to the benefits of receiving an arts education.

    BCOE - Special Ed Sports & Recreation

    BCOE - Special Ed Sports & Recreation

    Participating in sports can help boost self-confidence, improve motor skills, and support mental health and wellness. For those with disabilities, it can be hard to access opportunities they can participate in. With our donors' generosity, we will continue to support access and opportunities for individuals with disabilities to participate in recreation and sporting events.
