Meeting the need for housing in Colorado's flood zone
Catholic Charities is "working with interfaith communities and partnerships to figure out long-term housing solutions" in the areas of Colorado devastated by the September floods, said Larry Smith, president and CEO of Catholic Charities in the Archdiocese of Denver.
"We have to really hunker down and figure out how we're going to help these folks long term," said Smith, interviewed Oct. 9, 2013 in Milliken amid the Coats for Colorado distribution. "And where are we going to find that long-term housing solution that we're going to need for them? A lot of folks are going to be displaced, probably, but at least we'll be able to find someplace for them to live. And that's really the next focus for Catholic Charities."
