In October of 2017 wildfires burnt over 245,000 acres and destroyed over 5,000 homes in Sonoma County.
Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County has developed multiple programs to contribute to the wildfire relief and recovery efforts.
Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County recently launched it’s Sonoma Wildfire Cottage Initiative as a part of the fire recovery efforts.
This pilot program will showcase multiple building technologies for long-term affordable and workforce housing solutions for Sonoma County, and provide immediate relief for families displaced by wildfires.
Construction on the cottages is expected to begin this summer and the anticipated date for occupancy is late fall and early winter of this year.

Cottages will be sited on the Medtronic Fountaingrove Campus.
Cottage development will be overseen by renowned Katrina Cottage developer and designer Marianne Cusato.
Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County is developing a program that will make funding available to those who face financial barriers to rebuilding.
This program is under development. Please fill out this interest form to receive updates as more details become available.
