Housing Relief for Camp Fire Victims at Rancho Chico Mobile Home Park
The Monolith Community Giving Project creates housing opportunities at Rancho Chico MHP for dozens of seniors, families and individuals displaced by the Camp Fire in Paradise, Magalia and surrounding areas of Butte County, California.
"After several discussions with members of our team, most of whom were affected in some way by this terrible fire, we decided to make vacant spaces at Rancho Chico available to our neighbors who lost their homes and need a place to live, either transitionally or indefinitely,"
The "Camp Fire Victims Housing Relief Program" as described on a flyer distributed throughout the area offers up to six months of transitional housing space for qualified RV applicants, with discounted rent for those displaced by the Camp Fire.
"Response has been inspiring," says Monolith Properties CFO Mark Weiner. "We created the program last weekend while the fire was raging, announced on Monday, and the phone has been ringing off the hook ever since. It's nice to be able to offer something meaningful to our neighbors up the hill who have been devastated by the fire. When the fire exploded we immediately wanted to help, and this was one way that we knew we could do our part. The community's response has been really amazing."
Victims of the Camp Fire and their families and friends can find more information about the program at RanchoChicoMHP.com or by visiting the community in person.
