Valley Fire Middletown, CA 2015
The Valley Fire began on September 12th at 1:24 pm. What started out as a small fire of less then 400 acres blazed to over 10,000 acres in less than 12 hours burning more then 76,076 total acres and destroying more the 2000 structures. Damage Assessments place the destroyed homes at 1200+.
With a 25% poverty rate and a high unemployment, we anticipated that there would be many needs including a very large number of under insured and no insurance at all. The goal of Hope City is to assist in the rebuild process using volunteer labor from all over the U.S. and Canada.
Hope City is a collaboration of local faith-based organizations and corporate partners who have come together to help rebuild homes and restore lives. Hope City has committed 3-5 years to help rebuild homes at an estimated cost of $5-6 million dollars. All homes are built free of cost and without discrimination to the homeowner. Families contribute funds designated to the project and agree to participate in our extensive case management.
With no administration fees and a strong core team, our donors and volunteers see the biggest return from their small investment of their time or finances. It is our prayer that you and your team not only see how you can help in the recovery efforts of the Valley Fire, but also how you can renew yourself spiritually.
