RCA CARE Network: Respond to Colorado Flooding
Flooding in Colorado over the last week has left eight people dead and hundreds stranded due to washed out roads in isolated mountain valleys and canyons. More than 19,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed by floodwaters.
World Renew, the RCA CARE Network's domestic disaster response partner, is working with several churches in the affected area and will send an early response team this week to begin making contacts and planning for long-term flood recovery.
All Souls Church of Boulder (RCA) in Colorado has helped several members with clean up after their homes were flooded. Pastor Will Forsythe says All Souls is already talking with other churches and looking at the long-term rebuilding process and how they could be a part of it.
How you can help
