Supporting, guiding, and connecting the community and individuals in times of crisis.

Non-Profit History and Current Board Members

In 2010, Routt County Crisis Support, formally known as The Steamboat Community Assistance Fund was formed to allow firefighters the opportunity to offer emergency assistance to people following an event that was life changing. Through the years, this fund has offered hotel rooms to families following a car accident or fire. We have rented cars for people who lost theirs to an accident. We have purchased clothing, baby “gear” and appliances following house fires.

Through the years, this fund has grown. In 2017, the non-profit became a 501 (c)(3)

Thanks to community support, we are now able to offer the following services:

Our vision is to continue to grow and support this amazing community and offer support during and after a crisis.
