How to Support Those Affected by the Boulder County Fires

Show Your Love

On December 30th, the Marshall and Middle Fork fires roared through Boulder County, catastrophically affecting the communities of Superior and Louisville. To date, over 6,000 acres were burned and 991 structures were destroyed including nearly 600 homes.

Here at PorchLight, our team watched in disbelief as this disaster quickly unfolded. We are heartbroken for our friends, neighbors, clients and these beloved towns. With offices in Longmont and Boulder, we know these communities well and our agents have served the people of these communities. We are devastated but here to support you and help you build back stronger.

If YOU need help with housing, please reach out to one of our agents or visit:
