About Us, 15 Nov 2012 [cached]
After CARe's executive director, George Kehrer, lost his home in the 1991 Oakland Hills Fire, he joined an ad hoc group appropriately named the "Unexpectedly Underinsured Allstate Policyholders" or UUAP. The media had another name for those affected by the fire - "Disaster Victims." Although the fire had initially victimized them and their neighborhood, this group soon found themselves pulling out of "victim" mode and into a new "survivor" mentality. Since then we've seen "disaster victims" from around the United States become "disaster survivors." These newly branded "survivors" soon learned that for those covered by insurance, getting their claim paid was by far the biggest immediate hurtle they had to clear to move on. Through an extreme stroke of fate, shortly after the Oakland Hills fire, George ran into an ex-adjuster of 20 years named Ina DeLong who was fed up with the tactics used by State Farm against policyholders following the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake.
Almost overnight, Community Assisting Recovery, Inc. or CARe, was formed and George was asked to serve as its first executive director.

"It was very widespread," added George Kehrer, who founded Community Assisting Recovery - CARe - several years after losing his home in the 1991 Oakland Hills Fire, primarily to help survivors navigate the insurance maze, and who worked with Cedar Fire survivors. The organization also publishes "Disaster Recovery: A Survivor's Guide to Insurance."
He and other advocates counsel survivors to contact nonprofit consumer organizations for advice on how to avoid common pitfalls, such as settling too early for too little money.
