A nonprofit that usually helps others found itself in need of help, when flooding swamped the Front Range last week. The brand new offices of Boulder County CareConnect were badly damaged. That made it extra challenging for the agency to meet its mission of helping seniors in need and adults with disabilities. Executive Director Emily Ditty tells CPR’s Pat Mack that the organization is back up and running and still getting calls from flood victims.
