Mold mitigation in homes has been another important need. Although the Red Cross does not perform mold mitigation, it has supported the mold mitigation efforts of Calvary Relief by providing them with fuel, N-95 masks and supplies.
One-on-one casework is another important aspect of long-term recovery. The Red Cross contributed building and office supplies that helped make it possible for a case management office to be built and staffed in Lyons.
Finally, the Red Cross has been helping to prepare the town for future disasters, including coordinating community preparedness workshops and dialogues.
"Recovery is a long-term process. We'll continue working with Lyons for months to come," said Sabrina Amon, Recovery Manager for the Red Cross of Colorado.
