Rogue Valley Habitat for Humanity is looking for four more families displaced by the 2020 Almeda fire who want to help build their own homes.

The organization announced Wednesday it has launched phase two of its Almeda Home Ownership Program and is now accepting applications. The homes will be built in the Talent and Phoenix area.

During phase one of the program, Habitat for Humanity selected four families who are working with volunteers to build their own homes, resulting in cost savings for the families.

Applications from interested fire survivors for phase two are due by 5 p.m. May 27.

“It is an incredible opportunity to reclaim this burnt land, to build on it again for families that lost everything in the fire and — from this tragedy — make someone’s dream of home ownership come true. It is truly full circle,” Rogue Valley Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Denise James said in a press release.

More information and applications in English and Spanish are available to download and print by visiting the organization’s website at www.roguevalleyhabitat.org/.

Printed copies of the application are also available at the Rogue Valley Habitat for Humanity administrative office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, at 2201 S. Pacific Highway, in Medford, or the organization’s nearby ReStore home improvement center. ReStore is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, at 2233 S. Pacific Highway.
