Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To provide decent affordable housing to those in need.
We are a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Our affiliate is comprised of a core group of dedicated volunteers that come from many walks of life and have a broad range of skills and experience. We build or renovate houses for chosen families that demonstrate a need and have the ability to partner with us. We are responsible for the entire process; from selecting a property- to transferring ownership. We also continue to support the new owners after they have settled into their new homes. Some of those in turn volunteer with us, becoming part of our team. The many hundreds of tasks and details that are necessary to facilitate this process are shared by many individuals, institutions and businesses outside of our core group, and we could not accomplish much, without their support and the support of the communities we build in. Not only do we build houses but we build and strengthen relationships in the community.
