MARSHALL FIRE RELIEF

The Navigating Disaster for Boulder County program has launched a new website: bouldercountynavigatingdisaster.gov. This program is dedicated to helping the people of Boulder County experience relief from disasters. For those impacted by the Marshall fire and wind event, this webpage provides information on utilizing a Recovery Navigator to guide you through the process of recovery.

This free service offers long- and short-term support to help residents navigate the recovery and rebuilding process. Learn more.

Sister Carmen Community Center continues to be here for our community. If you’ve been affected by the Marshall Fire, please call 303-665-4342 or email marshallsupport@sistercarmen.org. SCCC may be able to provide the following services:

  • Direct Financial Assistance for expenses you can’t afford (including rent, mortgage, storage, transportation, and babysitting)
  • Food, hygiene, and baby items
  • Gift certificates to the Sister Carmen Thrift Store
  • Gift cards to grocery and department stores

In the months following the Marshall Fire, Sister Carmen Community Center has assisted 840 affected families/households with the following services:

  • Distributed $425,994 in direct financial assistance for hotels, rent, storage, transportation, babysitting, and more
  • Distributed $586,573 in gift cards for gas, groceries, clothing, and household goods
  • Distributed 38,861 pounds of food and hygiene products through our food bank

Please be aware that our services are open to the entire community for anyone in need. SCCC’s mission is to provide assistance to the residents of Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, and Erie, without discrimination. This includes those who have been recently affected by the Marshall Fire, those impacted by the pandemic, and many more. As such, any donations made to the Food Bank and Thrift Store will be used to benefit the community at large, and we cannot guarantee that they will only be distributed to those affected by the Marshall Fire.
