CHICO, Calif. -- Several non-profits held a meeting Tuesday night to talk about 40 manufactured homes they plan to replace for free that were burnt in the Camp Fire. 

More than a year after the Camp Fire, there are still people displaced looking for permanent homes.

"That's been the hardest thing, is that there is no place," said Vicky Southworth, a Camp Fire survivor.

Southworth lost her Paradise home in the Camp Fire. Since then, she's been searching for a permanent place to call home again.

"It's been real hard because I don't make enough. I work part-time, I'm 63, I just don't make enough," Southworth said. 

More than 40 manufactured homes will be replaced in areas burned by the Camp Fire, free of charge. It's all thanks to several non-profits like the Camp Fire Long Term Recovery Group and Samaritan's Purse.

"Once I get back to my, you know, home, I'm not moving again. I'm 71 years old now. There's not many options out there for an old man and a dog," said William Woodring, a Camp Fire survivor who lost his home in the fire. 

Some of the guidelines include, the homeowner must be able to afford all taxes, utilities and insurance.

Project manager Tracy Davis said property tax and insurance costs are expected to be about $2,600 a year. They want to ensure people they give the homes to can afford these costs.

"It would be better than my other mobile home, it would be on a foundation, and I think those are better, but it's going to cost me a little more," Southworth said.
