Even before considering the scarred landscape, and the memories associated with two people dying and 345 homes disappearing in the Waldo Canyon Fire, people could be forgiven for shying away from buying homes or lots in Mountain Shadows. After all, the fire's devastation was so widespread up there that a few months ago, County Assessor Mark Lowderman lowered property values by 10 percent on homes that didn't burn, due to the stigma of their being in the destruction zone.

Testimonials

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
