This information is being updated by the Boulder Office of Emergency Management (OEM). Please check their site for updates and the most current information:

The Boulder County Disaster Assistance Center, located at the Boulder County Southeast County Hub at 1755 South Public Road in Lafayette, will operate from 9am to 7pm, seven days a week, and will include specialists from Boulder County Housing and Human Services, Public Health, and Community Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Mental Health Partners, many other area government and nonprofit organizations, and insurers.

Help Available at the Disaster Assistance Center

  • Consultation on property loss and filing claims for assistance
  • Gift cards for replacement of food and transportation costs
  • Information about short- and long-term housing
  • Help with vital records
  • Referrals to emergency shelter
  • Food assistance
  • Mental health services
  • COVID-19 tests
  • Transportation vouchers
  • Referrals for personal finance planning

Ongoing recovery websites

Those impacted by the Marshall Fire are encouraged to visit www.boco.org/MarshallFire and www.boco.org/MarshallFireEspanol to learn about the recovery process and find out about available resources for which they may qualify. Opportunities for making donations or volunteering to help the community recovery are also available on these pages.

Re-entry information

If you are from an impacted area and wanting to know if you can return to your neighborhood to assess damages or get into your home, the best source of information is the Public Information Map. You can type in your address and see the closure status. This map is being updated frequently as new areas open up.

Want to help?

We know our community’s heart is huge, and everyone wants to help. Official sites are unable to accept any material donations — please do not bring these to shelters or other disaster support locations.

Victims most need money. While some families have gofundme accounts set up by friends, we cannot verify the authenticity of each of these, and we are concerned about fraud. The very best way to ensure victims receive funding, without tax implications, is to donate to www.coloradogives.org.

Can’t give money, but want to volunteer? There will be many needs in the months ahead. Please do not self-dispatch to disaster areas. Please registers at: https://coloradoresponds.communityos.org/. This state clearinghouse will strive to match volunteers with community and individual needs.
