Avanti Reliefs
Love Will Lead Us Home.
As a stakeholder in California from North to South, our hearts are with our friends and neighbors affected by the wildfires of the past few months. While events in our life can be unexpected and challenging, we wanted to send along a message of hope to take with you into the new year. Read some of these stories of hope below and learn more about how The New Home Company is helping our Calabasas community at Avanti with efforts to support victims through our direct partnership with a number of furniture brands. Avanti has a limited number of move-in ready homes are now available with a wide array of INCLUDED furniture, lighting and accessories for victims of the fires. These homes, and all the donated additions are intended to provide a turnkey new home option for victims to consider as they begin moving forward. Learn more at AvantiNWHM.com.

Discover more stories of hope, perseverance and inspiration below.
Kevin Carson, President of The New Home Company in Northern California, was moved by the fires and stories of hope and inspiration that came from the ordeal. He sent the following message to his team, which in turn raised significant gift card donations for the victims.

"I have been asked by many of our team members if we were going to do something as a division for those impacted by the Camp Fire in Butte County. The stories that are told by the survivors are heartwarming, harrowing and unbelievable. They truly shine the light on the human kindness that exists in our world. We have witnessed so much compassion and love by others during this tragic time it just makes sense that we do something. The question was never “if” we would do something but “what” is most beneficial. I have family friends who lost their home, their adult children’s home and their parent’s home. There is no question each of you know someone who has also been impacted with so much loss and devastation.

After talking with our friends and doing some research, I have determined the best place for our donations would be the North Valley Community Foundation (nvcf.org). They recommended gift cards as they are likely to have the greatest benefit to the fire victims. We will have a collection bin at the holiday party next week to collect any gift cards that you would like to contribute. We will make sure our contributions are delivered to the North Valley Community Foundation before the Holidays. I appreciate the caring team we have in Northern California. I am extremely grateful to work with each of you."

Brands Partner Together to Bring Woosley Fire Victims Home.

Renowned design firms, Lulu & Georgia and Six Penny have pledged to donate furniture, lighting and home accessories to victims of the Woosley fire at The New Home Company's Calabasas community, Avanti.
Toy Drive
7-year-old holds toy drive for kids affected by the Woolsey Fire.

One 7-year-old from California has chosen to do what she can by holding a toy drive for kids who were affected by the Woolsey Fire -- even after her own family were victimized by the devastation. Sophia Novotny's home in Agoura Hills was among the 1,500 structures destroyed in the wildfires that swept through neighborhoods in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Despite losing valuable items in the fire, Sophia was more consumed with helping out other children in her situation, her mother said. "Very quickly she realized that our things were gone, so the day that we lost the house, she said...'Let's get some toys for the other kids who lost their house,'" April Novotny, Sophia’s mother told KABC.
LA Times
Displaced by Woolsey Fire, Malibu Families Gather for a Meal & Hugs.

Jacqueline and Juliette Laplante, 16-year-old twins, wanted to wait in the car. But their father, Leo, coaxed them into the Santa Monica High School cafeteria.“You need clothes,” he told them. “They have clothes.” The Laplantes were among about 400 people who took part in a Tuesday event called Happy Friendsgiving, which was organized by local teachers and other school district employees to help those whose lives were disrupted by the Woolsey fire, which swept through Malibu last week. The fire killed three, burned 97,000 acres and destroyed 1,500 structures.

It’s been a heartbreaking few days. This is what’s left of my house. Love. Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires. I spent the day in Malibu yesterday and it was amazing to see the community pulling together to help each other out in any way they can. Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger. Thankful for the all the great local guys that helped keep smaller fires out around my property. I love u guys. I love you Malibu. Thank you to all the hero firefighters around California. It’s going to be a journey to rebuild. Stay strong all. To help/donate visit @malibufoundation and @happyhippiefdn

Thank you to Malibu Autobahn organization for their financial donation to the Humane Society of Ventura County. Jake along with other members of the automotive group, drove up to the recently to drop off their donation in person and tour the Shelter. The group of automotive enthusiasts raised funds through their November Meetup on November 18 this year as well as donations through Social Media. The donations went to those impacted by the recent fires in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. “The community support for the HSVC has been invaluable during the fires and floods,” said Greg Cooper, Director of Community Outreach for the Humane Society of Ventura County. “We could not offer our emergency services without the generosity of Malibu Autobahn and their fundraising partner Bubu hats for their support,” Cooper continued. @malibuautobahn @bubu_la #hsvc #ojai #malibu #animalshelter #malibuautobahn #woolseyfire

This gal right here, @jessicasteindorff embodies our motto of neighbors helping neighbors. She has constantly gone above and beyond to help her community through the woolsey fires. From escorting as many horses as she could out during the fire, to ensuring that when they came back they had shelter and feed. She even facilitated an amazing pop up out of her garage- to bring community together, keep them clothed and ensure they know that support is coming their way. She is exactly who we as Help CA seek to empower. Help her, help her neighbors, that’s what it’s all about. Thank you for everything you do Jess & @zadranch, you rule.
