  • 08.22.22

    We are having a conversation about the Navigating Disaster for Boulder County program, or Recovery Navigators, with Boulder County Recovery and Resiliency Project Manager, Katie Arrington. Over the last decade, Boulder County has been faced with a multitude of disasters in the form of floods, fires, shootings and pandemics. Each disaster has its own specific challenges and lessons to learn, but the lack of disaster response infrastructure is a consistent source of delay and frustration for survivors as well as those providing relief.  Navigating Disaster for Boulder County, a program funded by Boulder County and the Community Foundation of Boulder County’s Boulder County Wildfire Fund, is an innovative model for this lack of infrastructure that plagues disaster response not just in Boulder County but in nearly every community across our country. The County is partnering with Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains (LFSRM) on the administration of the program.
