Marshall Fire - Community Resources

Those who have been displaced or otherwise impacted by the Marshall Fire are still able to get assistance and information online at www.boco.org/MarshallFire, and additional targeted outreach and support will occur for community members who need help with recovery.

Federal Emergency Management Agency officials continue to provide support to Marshall Fire victims over the phone and virtually. Services will continue to be available online at DisasterAssistance.gov, the FEMA mobile app, or by calling the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362, according to a FEMA news release.  Multilingual operators are also available. The toll-free number is open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.


  • The Boulder JCC is offering FREE meeting spaces (equipped with tables, Wi-Fi) for those impacted by the fires or working to support our community. To reserve a meeting space, please email ReserveFreeSpace@boulderjcc.org. If you need any Zoom/virtual meeting support, please email Nancy.Lipsey@boulderjcc.org.

Information is constantly evolving, and we will continue to update this page with resources.

For Families with Children:
 
Our beloved community is experiencing unthinkable devastation as the fires continue to spread through our neighborhoods, impacting lives and homes across Boulder County. We have heard from many of you, and we know many families that have lost their homes, and many more are awaiting information about their homes. We are heartbroken by the loss, displacement, and ongoing tragedy that we are experiencing.

Our thoughts are with everyone in our community and our first responders who are working tirelessly to contain the fire. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe during this time.

We will continue to learn more in the hours and days ahead, and we will share resources on this page as they become available. If there are ways that the Boulder JCC can support you, please let us know.  

Our thoughts are with our community. 

Together,
