Where We Are Now
With the help of countless donors, volunteers, and partners the OCLTRG has been able to accomplish some amazing projects and put many survivors back in their brand new homes. Phase I of the home rebuilds consisted of 13 homes and was completed in 2017. Phase II consists of 15 homes, 13 of which have been completed. Phase III began in the fall of 2017, and will likely be completed by the end of 2018! When all is said and done, 34-36 homes will have been built!
In addition to our rebuild program, the OCLTRG supports survivors through volunteer requests. These volunteer requests include fencing, outbuilding construction, site cleanup, and much more! As of December 2017, more than 250 volunteer requests have been completed, with less than 30 remaining!
As we look forward to wrapping up our rebuilds and volunteer projects by the end of 2018, we can't help but be so grateful for the thousands of generous volunteers and donors that have made this progress possible! Once the rebuild program is completed, the OCLTRG will transition to programs focused on fire prevention and preparing for future disasters in the area.
