Red Cross Opens Resource Center for High Park Fire Victims at Foothills Mall

American Red Cross/Facebook

Over the last few weeks we have told you about and volunteered to help out at the Adventist Disaster Response distribution center in the Foothills Mall to help those affected by recent wildfires in Northern Colorado. Now the American Red Cross has also set up shop at the mall to provide a one-stop location for fire victims to find the assistance and resources they need to move forward.

Along with the make-shift store the Adventist Disaster Response team has put together to allow fire victims the opportunity to come in and get the things they need to move forward, the mall will also house Red Cross caseworkers. These caseworkers will offer advice on federal relief funds, documenting insurance claims, and making referrals to other national, regional and local agencies and groups for support, health services and counseling. “We are going to help them create a road map to be their own agents of recovery, so they can get themselves back where they want to be,”  Sara Kennedy, Central Texas Region director of communications, told the Coloradoan.

In addition to the resource center, the Red Cross is sending emergency response vehicles into the newly reopened evacuation areas to reach out directly to those returning to damaged or destroyed homes.

The resource center in the old Mervyns building at the Foothills Mall (203 E. Foothills Parkway, Fort Collins) and is open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
