Rise Up Project

Together We Can.

Larkfield Estates and Mark West Estates approached Rebuild Northbay Foundation requesting assistance for approximately one mile of common perimeter fencing. Both neighborhoods were decimated in the fires and neither neighborhood has the means to replace the fence. This is an unmet need.


Rebuild partnered with Habitat for Humanity and together, we have raised the funds and created the right partnerships to put up one mile of common fencing for two subdivisions in Santa Rosa, thereby saving the homeowners the cost (~$500,000).

Fencing is not an obviously exciting cause, but much of the needs of fire survivors are practical and as basic as fences, bridges, etc. It is critical we step up and meet community needs as they arise. We must listen and then serve communities as they rebuild. Additionally, our larger community needs visual, tangible deliverables of hope and progress.
