Single mom flooded out in Colorado: The charity "means more than anybody will ever know."

Autumn Dean of Milliken, Colo., arrived at the Catholic Charities disaster relief services center on Sept. 27, 2013, shivering in a steady drizzle of rain and desperate for help. She left with a smile on her face and a truck-bed full of water, food and cleaning materials.



"My house was completely flooded, underwater for my 25th birthday," she said. "Getting the help from the community and the people that are willing to come in and help us out means more than anybody will ever know. I'm a single mom with two kids and I work on one income. Their dads aren't around to help. The support is what matters the most."
