Despite her losses, Janice stepped up to assist in her community’s recovery by serving as treasurer of the Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team. She subsequently became the organization’s executive director and was instrumental in writing grants, organizing fundraisers and assisting with volunteers that led to the successful rebuild of 133 homes. Since then she has shared her knowledge with several other disaster recovery teams in Texas.

In September 2011, Janice Butler lost her home and much of her community during the most destructive wildfire in Texas history. The Bastrop County Complex Fires destroyed almost 1700 homes, 38 businesses, 34,000 acres and resulted in the loss of 2 lives. What it didn’t destroy were the spirits of those affected.
