Butte Fire brings back memories of our roots...
Help is needed for displaced families to rebuild their lives and homes

Calaveras County is experiencing the after effects of the devastating September 2015 Butte Fire. At 70,800+ acres burned, over 475 homes destroyed, 343 non-residences destroyed, and 45 homes damaged, the Butte Fire now ranks as the 7th most destructive fire in California history!  With your volunteer help or donation the cleanup and rebuild can take place.

As the only non-profit home builder in the County, Habitat for Humanity Calaveras is here to help with repairs and rebuilding.

We are ready to help with any housing related issue (fire related or not), and 90% of funds collected will be used in Calaveras County. (HfHC tithes 10% to help HfHI build in other countries.)

The need is great. Please give from the heart to help. Share our homepage link on your FB, Instagram, text messaging or other social media so your friends, co-workers, and employers can also share your enthusiam to help. Corporate donatons are also greatly needed and appreciated.

Your generous donaton will help families in Calaveras County affected by this disaster rebuild. Thank you.

If you have suffered fire damage to your home and you need assistance, please call our office. Volunteers are ready to help you with your specific need. We ask that you leave a message if we don't answer the phone, as our staff members are also victims of the fire, so we may be out of the office or delayed in responding to your calls.

Home ownership is the goal of most American families. Habitat for Humanity Calaveras (HfHC) provides home ownership to responsible local families who already live and work in the community but have yet to own their first home. Together with volunteers, families partner with us to build a simple but modern home that they then buy on very favorable terms. Each family volunteers 400 hours of ‘sweat equity’ and then has a zero-interest mortgage payable to Habitat. Payments are then used to build more homes for more families. Contrary to popular belief, Habitat Homes are NOT free!

Habitat families become property owners and are stakeholders in the community. Habitat is a ‘Hand Up’ NOT a ‘Hand Out’. Communities become stronger with hard working families building a new life full of promise and hope.

Visit our ReStore at 172 California Street in San Andreas, CA for new or gently used building materials, appliances, and furniture needs.
