Historic flooding in Colorado and other western United States

Significant flooding in Colorado and other western states has led to nearly 2000 homes destroyed, more than 17,000 homes damaged and more than 11,000 residents evacuated.

Habitat Disaster Response in Colorado
Habitat for Humanity mobilized local volunteers in affected areas to engage in cleanup efforts, partnering with the Habitat State Support Organization of Colorado and National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster members and partners.

Habitat has developed a three-year vision for its role in flood recovery efforts across Colorado, including critical home repair, rehabilitation and new construction in flood-affected communities through mobilizing public and private resources. Target areas include Boulder, Longmont, Millinken and Loveland.

Volunteer
Potential volunteers are requested not to self-deploy as local disaster response organizations are not looking for unaffiliated volunteers at this time. 

If you would like to volunteer individually or as a group:

  • Register for updates at www.helpcoloradonow.org. Please note that registering does not guarantee you will be contacted by a voluntary agency needing assistance.
  • You can also contact the Habitat for Humanity Affiliate Support Center to register your individual or group volunteering interest at 877-HFHI-HELP (877-434-4435) or USSupportCenter@habitat.org. This information will be shared with affected local Habitat affiliates as they become able to host volunteers.
