DENVER — The Living In Place Institute is spearheading a fundraising drive aimed at assisting qualified families in rebuilding or repairing homes that were damaged or destroyed by recent wildfires and tornados, the Denver-based organization announced.
The Living In Place Institute said that it is soliciting either cash or in-kind donations aimed at assisting families in Colorado and elsewhere through its Living In Place Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides services to families looking to rebuild in line with specialized needs. The foundation offers qualified families a budget for design services from Certified Living in Place Professionals (CLIPP), as well as uninsurable essential items that facilitate the tasks of daily living.
“Having lost everything has been a challenge for us. However, it’s even a greater challenge for those who lack the resources to reestablish themselves,” said Living in Place Institute Co-founder Louie Delaware, whose home was destroyed by wildfire in December.
“I’m humbled and grateful for the outpouring of support and love for my family, as well as my team rising to the occasion to help rebuild others’ homes in the communities affected by the fire and the recent tornados,” Delaware said.
