CARe News

Disaster Recovery: A Survivor's Guide to Insurance is now available in multiple formats. In addition to the free PDF workbook downloadable HERE on our website, it is also available HERE at the lowest possible price on Amazon's Kindle store and on Amazon HERE at the lowest available print price.

Having the book available in the popular Kindle format allows readers to adjust the font size to make it much more readable on a Kindle device as opposed to the PDF format. The print version allows homeowners a tangible version without the high price of ink or toner when printing from home.

We hope having these multiple versions available will give more survivors access to the good information CARe has to offer.

Inspirational Quotes

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

Maria Robinson


We lost our home in the 2007 Witch Creek Fire in Poway CA. As was the case with most (if not all) of my neighbors, we were drastically under insured through no fault of our own. I don’t believe that anyone is prepared for such a catastrophic emotional and financial loss. The task of completely rebuilding your life is monumental. Fortunately, the city of Poway co-operated with CARe and allowed them to hold bi-weekly insurance meetings in the City Chambers. After attending 2 of the group meetings we then scheduled several one-on-one meetings with CARe and were able to start to piece together the puzzle that is a catastrophic insurance claim. The resources which CARe was able to put us in touch with were incredible, and after they showed us the basics of handling an insurance claim we felt that we had knowledge to work through the once daunting task of negotiating with our insurance company. We could not have made it through the process without the information, help and encouragement that we received from CARe
