JFS Offering Funds, Counseling for Those Affected by Marshall Fire; Har HaShem Sponsoring Insurance Seminars

As the hours and days unfold, we continue to learn more about the devastation caused by the Boulder County fires. We have all been impacted in different ways. Our hearts are heavy.

We are listening to the needs of our community and the desire to help. We are working with our community partners to identify the support we can provide. We have prepared and are continuously updating a list of resources for those impacted and for those who want to help.

Here are a few immediate resources, in addition to the resources in general:

  • FUNDS ARE NOW AVAILABLE: JFS is partnering with the JEWISHcolorado Boulder Fire Relief Fund to provide emergency financial assistance for temporary housing, food, clothing, household needs, phone bills, auto payments, utilities, and much more. Fill out the simple form to start the process.
  • FREE CRISIS COUNSELING: JFS Boulder also provides Crisis Counseling. The program offers up to $500 towards five individual counseling sessions (a maximum of $100 per session), or up to $875 towards five family counseling sessions (a maximum of $175 per session) and provides a pool of licensed providers from which to choose.
  • LEARN ABOUT INSURANCE PROCESS AND CLAIMS TUESDAY NIGHT: Congregation Har HaShem is hosting Zoom sessions with Garth Gersten, an attorney who specializes in representing and advising policyholders regarding their insurance issues. During these meetings Garth will be sharing helpful information to assist in filing your insurance claims. Register for the next session: Tuesday, January 4 at 7 pm

DONATE: JEWISHcolorado has created the Boulder Fire Relief Fund and Community Foundation Boulder County has created the Boulder County Wildfire Fund.

Our thoughts are with our community.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
