Wildfire Support

Lodging

If you have been impacted by the fires and need alternative lodging, Stanford Medicine has contracted discounted lodging at multiple local hotels

Financial Assistance

The University is offering several emergency benefits such as paid time off for employees who are evacuated as well as pay for University staff members with outdoor jobs who were asked to stay home due to the unhealthy air quality.

The Employee Emergency Assistance Fund provides grants for benefits-eligible faculty and staff experiencing a personal hardship or a federally declared disaster. University HR has been proactively reaching out to employees in impacted zip codes to offer assistance. 

Emotional Support

Physician Support Network (PRN) Support connects Stanford Medicine physicians one-on-one with colleagues who can informally listen, provide perspective, provide resources, and help identify options.

The Faculty Staff Help Center offers free professional and confidential counseling to the Stanford community and is operating remotely during the pandemic.

Stanford Health Care is also offering Employee Assistance Program benefits to SHC staff.
