Habitat for Humanity Construction Site

Join our construction volunteers on Thursdays, Fridays, or Saturdays to work in all aspects of home construction as part of a team. The day begins with sign-in at 8 a.m. and typically ends around 3:00 p.m. Don’t worry if you’re inexperienced. Our work sites are supervised by skilled Habitat construction staff members who are on hand to give you instructions and assistance. You’ll work side-by-side with the family whose home you are helping to build and will be amazed at how much you’ll learn in a single day! We are finishing up two homes on 20th Street and starting six homes on Mulberry Street.

Application Review and Check Distribution for Camp Fire Survivors

United Way of Northern California was just granted $45,150 from the Butte Strong Fund to provide $1,500 of assistance each to 600 vulnerable households directly impacted by the Camp Fire, distributing a total of $900,000. We are in dire need of many volunteers to help us review applications, documents and help prepare checks for distribution as our staff is very small. We would like to hear from our potential volunteers if Saturdays work best or if weekdays are better. We realize that many workplaces offer their employees opportunities to volunteer during the workday. Tentative dates for now are one or two dates for 3 hours each during the last two weeks of March. We would like to hear back from those of you willing to help which works best for you-Saturdays or weekdays. The exact location and dates will be announced in early March, but will be in Chico. With thousands of people waiting on the Community Queue for disaster case management, this program will prevent 600 of the most vulnerable households on the list from spiraling into more traumatic and complicated situations. All of the households will meet basic eligibility criteria: 1) have requested disaster case management through Butte 2-1-1, 2) have not received Butte Strong or American Red Cross Emergency Financial Assistance (EFA), 3) have not been referred for disaster case management, and 4) can demonstrate proof of residence in the burn scar. Additional eligibility criteria for the funds will result in distributing to approximately 200 of each of these three categories: (1) single parent household OR infant in the home, (2) four or more dependents in the home, and (3) applicant is over the age of 65.

In periods of disaster, Caring Choices works with its public and private community partner agencies deploying volunteers to other agencies. In addition, volunteers assist the center with communications, donation management, tracking resources, and general administration.

Volunteering is a valuable part of every healthy community. Volunteers come from all segments of society and often provide essential services. Everyone has the potential to contribute strength and resources in times of emergency. There are valuable and appropriate roles for unaffiliated spontaneous volunteers in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
