Rebuild Oct 2007 Wildfire Response

Architects Respond to California Wildfires
Architecture for Humanity designers band together to help rebuild for people who have lost homes and businesses to the fires of Southern California.
Voluntary architects and designers in Southern California are banding together to prepare to help families and businesses rebuild. Early this week, Rebuild, the local San Diego chapter of Architecture for Humanity responded by volunteering in the evacuation center at Qualcomm Stadium. A meeting is being planned to discuss long-term solutions. Architecture for Humanity Los Angeles is also partnering with Rebuild San Diego to mount a regional-wide response including sharing information regarding local municipalities' relief efforts.
Architecture for Humanity efforts will focus on rebuilding and reconstruction.
We welcome all support and donations (please do not send donations of materials at this time). To learn more about each chapter's efforts, click UPDATES.
