CBS Evening News shared this quick backstory about how the Hope Lives Here Colorado group got their start and what their vision is:

The youngest victims of Colorado's Marshall Fire are getting a new place to call their own. Hope Lives Here Colorado is creating dream bedrooms for children whose families lost everything in the blaze.

No doubt these parents who are trying to help the most vulnerable have their hearts in the right place.

According to their report, there are still more than 100 children on the waiting list.
