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​ or find them on Facebook under Calaveras Recovers.

Congratulations on this very wonderful news.
Congratulations to the home owners who will
get to return to a new home.
(this isn't an April Fools joke is it?)

    Not at all! Breaking ground on two homes, with several more rolling out this summer. It's giving hope to many people who are feeling hopeless these days.

Knowing the Mennonites, they will get it done in a timely manner and keep costs in line. Good people.
