How It Works

The Homes for Sonoma Solution

Homes for Sonoma formed with the belief that housing is our county's greatest need. Before losing 5000 homes to wildfires, our region was already in crisis. With that in mind, we came up with a plan to address both immediate recovery and our long term housing shortage.

Homes for Sonoma builds temporary neighborhoods of modular cottages for fire survivors. Under disaster legislation, the homes can stay for three to five years. Our one, two, and three bedroom cottages are affordable and adaptable. They can be moved and placed on either temporary or permanent foundations. This means that after recovery, they can be sold and used as backyard housing in Sonoma County. Any funds from sales will go to non-profits dedicated to low-income housing in our region.

Our solution houses low-income fire survivors now. And it will affect our community for decades moving forward.
