WHO IS REBUILD PARADISE
The Rebuild Paradise Foundation, incubated through the North Valley Community Foundation, is a grassroots movement of Camp Fire survivors and community leaders from the public and private sectors who are dedicated to serving the long-term needs of Butte County's disaster affected residents, businesses and workforce. Founded in January of 2019 under the mentorship of Rebuild Northbay Foundation, we have established this non-profit foundation to provide access to resources and to help lower barriers to entry for those repopulating the disaster areas. The Rebuild Paradise Foundation is proud to partner with other non-profits, corporate donors, private donors and government agencies to accomplish our mission.
Residents are the key to rebuilding. Through resources and grants, we will attract, retain and incentivize the repopulation of residents to Butte County’s disaster affected areas. For economic recovery, getting residents back into homes is an immediate and primary focus of Rebuild Paradise Foundation.
To support economic viability in our community, we wish to retain and incentivize the opening and reopening of businesses in Butte County disaster affected areas. We will do so through dissemination of information and grants to businesses in disaster areas in commercial zones.
With jobs, especially in the trades, being in great demand before the fire it is important now more than ever to help support workforce development programs. Over time we will provide resources to the groups and individuals organizing and participating in the jobs programs that educate and train the next generation of trades people.
Utilizing the connections of the Rebuild Paradise Foundation and other disaster recovery organizations we will leverage private sector knowledge and resources to assist with areas of need that local governments have identified. In our advocacy efforts, we will foster meetings between all parties and make sure the community’s voice is heard at the state and federal level.
