Volunteer interviewers will meet with flood survivors to help individuals connect with resources and gain a clear picture of what it will take to recover

Boulder County, Colo. – The Long-Term Flood Recovery Group of Boulder County (LTFRG) has requested the services of a national disaster recovery group to determine who in the community will not be able to rebuild and recover without assistance. A team of World Renew volunteers will conduct one-on-one interviews with flood survivors from Feb. 10-22. This process will help to prioritize individual needs and connect survivors with the LTFRG which can provide long-term support during recovery with individual case management as well as financial and construction assistance for those most in need.

The LTFRG is organizing 5 walk-in locations across the county from February 10-22. Residents affected by the flood who require assistance for flood recovery are encouraged to visit a walk-in center to complete a short interview regarding flood losses and recovery needs.

All information given at the walk-in centers is confidential and will assist designated case managers to help residents connect with available resources. The information will also help to develop a detailed estimate of the total cost for recovery in the community which helps the LTFRG as well as government agencies raise the necessary recovery funds and donations of building materials and supplies

Interview questions are straightforward and should not require residents to supply any paperwork, although if flood survivors do have a FEMA number, they are asked to bring that with them to the center. Spanish language interpreters will be onsite at the Longmont location every day and will be available at other sites during designated hours. Sites are also wheelchair accessible (with the exception of the Altona Grange site) and appointments can be made for any ASL requirements.
