Our Vision Yarnell-Peeples Valley: A caring, thriving community rising from the ashes.
Our Mission is to identify the unmet needs of residents and businesses in the Yarnell Hill Fire area, and to identify ways to meet those needs.

Stategic Plan & Action Teams

On June 28, 2013, a lightening strike ignited the Yarnell Hill Fire, which became the deadliest wildfire in Arizona history.

The fire destroyed 8,400 acres, took the lives of 19 elite firefighters and destroyed 127 homes in the unincorporated communities of Yarnell and Peeples Valley. 
Most of the destruction occurred in Yarnell, which lost roughly a quarter of its homes.

The Yarnell Hill Recovery Group was formed by local volunteers to identify the unmet needs of residents and businesses  in the Yarnell Hill Fire area,
and to identify ways to meet those needs.

It has been recognized by Yavapai County and the state of Arizona as the recovery group for the Yarnell Hill Fire.
YHRG formed July 5, 2013 and one year later in July 2014, they incorporated.
The 501(c)(3) status was attained in March of 2015.

The Yarnell Hill Memorial Park is now sporting a 10 foot serpentine wall rising up the south side of the park and there will be no stopping the forward momentum at this point.   We've put up links to the videos of the action, dates you can volunteer to help, and numbers to call to get yourself on the volunteer list.

Fundraising is now a top concern!! You can find the forms to purchase the bricks being used to commemorate the Nineteen Hotshots who perished and the Loss of 145 homes in Glen Ilah and Yarnell.
