In response to the Camp Fire, Habitat is gearing up to build more houses in the surrounding communities until the burn scar area is ready for rebuilding. Historically we have built two homes a year. Given our housing shortage, this is not enough. We are expediting our construction schedule to start on 6 new homes in Chico, increasing our building by 300%. The Mulberry Project will incorporate 3 Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) to accommodate more families. Five of the six homes built will be for families who survived the Camp Fire. This project will house 8 children, 9 adults, including 3 single moms and one person with a disability. Habitat will begin preparation work in October, and we anticipate raising the walls by the end of November. We will work on all 6 homes simultaneously, with the goal of having the homes completed by December 2020.
All families are excited to get started on their homes. Not only will they be building their forever home but will also be rebuilding their lives after the Camp Fire.
