Welcome Home Event 


Join North Valley Community Foundation and the Camp Fire Collaborative, as we honor and celebrate Camp Fire Survivors, and our funders, Samaritan’s Purse, Wells Fargo, American Red Cross and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, for the triumphant return of survivor’s to their new homes.

The Camp Fire

The Camp Fire took less than 24 hours to devastate the Butte County communities of Paradise, Concow and Magalia. It will take years to recover. The fire on Nov. 8, 2018, quickly became the most destructive wildfire in state history. 

Samaritan's Purse volunteers assisted more than 1,200 families in hard-hit communities to help them recover their personal belongings from the ashes left behind. 


Samaritan's Purse worked alongside NVCF and provided $5 million to fund new manufactured homes for  displaced families in Butte County.


NVCF built partnerships with other funders to raise $1.7 milllion to support the infrastructure of the project.


The Camp Fire Collaborative partnered with NVCF to administer and oversee project management and provide case management.


Long-Term Recovery & Homecoming

Nearly two years after the fire, houses are being delivered to grateful families. On June 10, 2020, the first home was brought to Paradise - all 47 homes are expected to be delivered by September 15.
