FREE Wildland Fire Assessment Program and Habitat for Humanity Project
Some time ago, we started up our low-income free home assessment program. It was not long before we realized something; this program just did not do enough for the residents most in need of fire safety help in our county. We would do the assessments and then what? People did not have the time or financial resources to do the essential work that could protect their families, home, and community from wildland fires. People asked us if there would be further assistance provided and we assured folks we were working on it.
Enter the Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County’s Aging in Place Program! This program assists seniors, 65 and older, with critical home repairs and improvements! This allows them to age in place from the comfort of their home. Habitat for Humanity has construction staff and amazing volunteers that do this incredible work. They too have realized that in this day and age, with wildfires becoming an ever-growing issue and concern, home hardening and defensible space are critical to making sure Sonoma County resident seniors can live comfortably and safely at home. Thank you Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County!
We have teamed up our two organizations and programs, and with funding from the County of Sonoma, we are able to provide the full service that many Sonoma County residents are looking for – an assessment followed up with the needed improvements! Not only that, but the Fire Safe Sonoma Listos Tool Trailer will play a key role in this too because Fire Safe Sonoma is making it available for Habitat for Humanity to use. It has brand-new tools and equipment that are ready to be put to work.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you qualify and we can get your property assessed and hardened right away!
