Relief for Seniors Left Homeless After Almeda Fire

Bear Lake Estates was an active senior mobile home community with 210 homes. The entire community was burned completely to the ground by the Almeda Drive Fire late Tuesday night, September 8, 2020. The residents were forced to evacuate on short notice, most getting out with only the clothes on their backs.

The owner of Bear Lake Estates, Investment Property Group (IPG), has started this GoFundMe with hopes of providing immediate assistance to the residents of Bear Lake Estates as they are in urgent need of shelter, food, clothes, toiletries, etc. Some of the seniors do not have any insurance coverage for their home or their possessions. IPG will be donating $10, 000 directly to the residents in addition to every penny we collect through this campaign. This is an especially hard time as we work to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

All funds will be divided among all 210 households. We will begin dispersing funds after October 1, 2020. Checks will be sent to residents at their temporary addresses. These funds are intended to help with immediate needs such as shelter, food, clothes, toiletries, etc. If you are a resident and have not been in contact with Bear Lake Estates management, please call (541) [phone redacted] or email [email redacted].

Here's what Bear Lake Estates looks like after the devastating fire swept through the community.
