Wildfire Service Trip Registration
Email address *
Purpose
In the aftermath of the 2017 Santa Rosa fires we contacted the Bridge Community Church and asked if there was any way to help them rebuild. They said that the city is months away from rebuilding, and the best way we can help is to help them in their own work of rebuilding in Middleton, which had significant damage from the 2015 fires. So we are going to help Santa Rosa by helping Middleton!

More info
On behalf of Hope City, we would like to thank you for choosing to serve alongside us in Lake County, CA. We know that you have many options to choose from with disasters occurring more frequently and appreciate the time and energy your group is giving this community in need. Hope City is a volunteer rebuild camp partnering with Middletown Bible Church, The Bridge, Community Baptist Church, Santa Rosa Bible Church, Santa Rosa First United Methodist Church and the Hope Crisis Response Network as well as a building partner with Team Lake County.

The disaster you are responding to is known as the Valley Fire which began on September 12th, and was extinguished on October 6th, 2015. The incident DR-4240 started as a small fire of about 400 acres and grew to devastate over 10,000 acres within 12 hours. By the time the fire was extinguished it had injured four while taking the lives of four others and
burned 76,000 acres destroying 2000 structures, 1300 of which were homes.

After such devastation, the community was left in a state of great loss and grieving. With the poverty rate resting at 25%, and a high unemployment rate, we are seeing close to 45% of the population as either not insured or under-insured. Needless to say, Hope City is grateful for your willingness to help achieve the goal to rebuild homes in a community were the need is great.
