First Two Post Butte Fire Recovery Homes To Be Unveiled On Monday
San Andreas, CA...The first two homes to be built by Calaveras Recovers will be unveiled at the 9 a.m. Monday, April 4, meeting at The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints hall at 221 Church Hill Road, San Andreas. “We are excited to finally get started on these two homes,” said Allen Sender, president of the all-volunteer group. “We hope the agencies and other groups who want to be involved will attend.”
Already local architect, Mike Borean of Mike Borean Designs of Murphys, has created a modest
960-square-foot two-bedroom, one bath home. Phillip Miller, a licensed building contractor, and the local
Mennonite congregation have committed to being lead contractor and crew on the homes. Calaveras Recovers
plans to break ground on the homes sometime this month.
Calaveras Recovers is seeking participation at the Unmet Needs table where agencies, groups and
individuals can come together to help complete the home in offering skilled labor, donation of supplies, and
volunteer help to feed the crews and finish landscaping the yard.
“This will be a good meeting for people to learn about how they can help us build these first two homes,
but also help us complete the rest that are needed.”
Calaveras Recovers is a post-disaster recovery organization providing resources and support to
individuals and families devastated by the Butte Fire. The local, volunteer group is focused on helping rebuild
homes for those whose homes were uninsured or underinsured. Calaveras Recovers operates under the 501C(3)
sponsorship of the Amador Community Foundation, Tax ID #68-0447992. Public meetings are always held the
first Monday of the month at 9 a.m. at the Mormon Church. For more information see
