From the Community Advocate:
Community Support and Responses to Trauma
Saturday, January 4th, 2014 2:00-4:00 pm
Community Room at Alfalfa’s
1645 Broadway, Boulder
Enter at the south west corner of the building (separate from the store entrance).
Please join Nancy Lewis, who came to Jamestown post-flood and led the first Town Hall Community Gathering exploring our flood experiences and the normal response to trauma.
At this meeting, we will address:
- Ongoing challenges in immediate & long-term flood recovery
- Individual self-care
- Family support
- Building upon the existing community support system
- Prioritizing approaches/the order of tasks in recovery
- Insuring that support is on-going/sustainable
This shared experience has made us our own best advocates. We continue to give and receive a vast amount of physical support. It is important to continue looking at the emotional support, learn how to pace ourselves and continue moving forward.
Please join us as we build a system of emotional support, as unique as Jamestown, to meet your needs.
