The Thomas Fire has spread quickly across Ventura County.
Our Property Management Department, including our maintenance technicians, have been involved with evacuations and safety checks on our affordable housing communities. We will remain on “HIGH ALERT” to assist. Our residents to ensure their health and safety, which continues to be our highest priority.
Many of our county’s residents will need our support and resources. United Way of Ventura County, working with the Office of Emergency Services and many other organizations, will designate a disaster relief fund. Cabrillo will be working closely with United Way to determine how best to support an emergency response to our neighbors.
In the interim, you can make a donation to the United Way relief effort by sending a check to Cabrillo. Please make it payable to United Way and we will ensure they receive your donations. Please note, “Thomas Fire Fund” in the memo.
As we are all painfully aware, the fires have affected us all. Like you, I hope and pray that personal injuries and loss of life is minimal. We have successfully relocated our residents at three of our properties and will continue to monitor three other properties, two of which include many of our seniors who are confined to wheel chairs.
