Marshall Fire Information & Resources
We are safe. Our shelter is safe. Our housing clients are safe. Our staff is safe. We are safe. We are so grateful for our SPAN supporters who reached out concerning the safety of survivors of domestic violence during the fires in Boulder County. We were able to safely evacuate our housing clients and offer them support during this crisis. We are blessed to work with amazing advocates and supporters that jumped into action when needed. During instances like these, we are thankful to have an incredible community to rely on.
In 2021, SPAN provided over 300 services to survivors in Louisville, Superior, and Broomfield. All areas affected by the Marshall Fire. The devastating fire was yet another blow to many survivors’ stability. Many clients were evacuated, and SPAN staff safely relocated these families to our Emergency Shelter or local hotels outside the fire zone. Still, several families remain displaced, and SPAN’s advocates and counselors have focused on connecting them with Boulder County’s Disaster Assistance Center and with providing them with emotional support as they and their children process the traumatic impact of the fire on their community.
People who have been able to return to their homes have struggled to manage the impact to their home being without power for more than a week, needing immediate support with basic needs like food and cleaning supplies. You can help support survivors of domestic violence and their families as they continue to recover from the impacts of the Marshall Fire. Make a gift to SPAN today and together, we can make sure survivors get the help they need.
