CHICO, Calif. - The Butte Strong fund approved more than $1 million in grants to provide beds for Camp Fire survivors in the Renewal Center.

The Renewal Center is a multimillion-dollar project in Chico and is the second phase of the Jesus Center’s expansion on Fair St.

A $765,000 grant will help provide beds for 16 people affected by the Camp Fire and are unable to find housing.

"While we realize the homelessness crisis in our community is large and complex, there's no denying a number of people are in that situation because they lost a home in the Camp Fire and have had trouble securing housing since then," said Kim DuFour, NVCF program officer.
