Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa to Host Emergency Shelter Program

Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa to Host Emergency Shelter Program

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. (October 17, 2017) – Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa has been an indispensable partner, helping numerous Lake County residents recover from wildfire.  In the wake of the Sulphur Fire, President and General Manager Greg Bennett and his team will once again open their doors to receive wildfire survivors.

“Many County residents are fighting to find a sense of normalcy after losing everything, and quality medium-term housing is an essential step, offering so many essential things, such as a mailing address, reliable electricity and telephone service.  When the County reached out to Greg Bennett and Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa for help, they immediately responded, again coming to the aid of County residents,” reports Lake County’s District 5 Supervisor Rob Brown.

If you lost your home, and you have insurance, FEMA support, or can pay $1,000 per month, you may be eligible.  Applicants are required to go through a screening process, to ensure the safety of all sheltered at the resort.

The all-inclusive $1,000 monthly fee secures accommodations with 24 hour security, water, sewer, electricity, propane, telephone, cable TV, and more.  A limited number of fully furnished one bedroom suites offer a separate bedroom, bathroom, living room with a pull out sofa, fireplace, small full kitchen, and an outdoor deck.  Coin laundry facilities are available onsite for Resort residents, as well.

“County Officials and first responders and firefighters are doing so much for this community,” shares Bennett.  “We are just trying to help those impacted by the fires, in any little way we can, as their road to recovery begins!”

If you are interested, please call 707-279-6606 today.  The Resort’s general hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm.
