LONG-TERM RECOVERY

The flood of 2013 has devastated Northern Colorado and now we find ourselves looking for the most effective and productive ways to serve our neighbors to best help them recover and move forward.  The immediate concern of food and shelter for flood victims has been met.  Now the focus is long-term recovery efforts.

SERVE 6.8 is committed to a long-term solution of rebuilding our community.  The issues are complex and involve not just the rebuilding of homes, but also resourcing and equipping residents.  We learned many lessons in the aftermath of the 2012 High Park fire and understand the challenges  victims face as they move forward in rebuilding and restoring their homes and properties.

SERVE 6.8 will be working collaboratively with local and national agencies to fill the gaps in services needed and to provide our neighbors with solutions that help them restore their lives.  We are well equipped to meet the changing needs that will be part of this long-term process.

Please consider supporting Long Term Flood Recovery through SERVE 6.8 as we stand alongside our friends and neighbors in Northern Colorado.

 

What is
happening?

Hundreds
of people in our Northern Colorado community have been affected by the
mid-September floods and are in need of immediate and long-term assistance.
Timberline Church has served as an evacuation center where over 125 volunteers
from SERVE 6.8 have gathered to provide food, clothing, blankets, and other
items to over 140 affected people. As of Sept. 13, 2013, SERVE 6.8 also
received an additional 80 people at the Timberline evacuation center who had
been residing at Catholic Charities, which was also evacuated due to flooding.

What is
SERVE 6.8?

SERVE 6.8 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose
mission is to share God’s love in tangible ways in Northern Colorado with no
strings attached. SERVE 6.8 has partnered with the Red Cross, Salvation Army,
and Larimer County Sheriff’s Dept. to provide relief for the victims of the
Northern Colorado Floods. SERVE 6.8 worked closely to bring immediate
assistance and long-term rebuilding support to the victims of the High Park
Fire.

What is
SERVE 6.8 doing to help in the relief efforts?

SERVE
6.8 is currently on the ground providing immediate assistance to those in our
community who have been displaced by the floods to meet their practical needs
such as food, shelter and clothing. We are preparing to lead Northern Colorado
in the long-term relief efforts of clean up and rebuilding. The cost to cover
expenses for both immediate relief and long-term recovery efforts is estimated
to be over $165,000.

What
can I do to help?

SERVE
6.8 is not about what we can do alone in the community, it’s about partnering
with those in our community to make a difference in peoples lives. We need each
other to make this all happen. There are three practical things you can do to
come along side us in our efforts to serve our community:

this without you!
