Two Recovery Events Offered by Long Term Recovery Group

The Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG) of the Pikes Peak Region is a non-profit consortium of local disaster response organizations and faith groups. We would like to inform the community of two weekly events they have organized.

Thursday Evening Listening Post

The Waldo Canyon Fire Emotional and Spiritual Care (ESC) Team has opened a listening post for neighbors who experienced the Waldo Canyon Fire and its aftermath. Each person has a unique story to tell. The listening post provides residents with a genuine, caring, listening ear. If you find yourselves struggling with unresolved issues or stuck in the process of recovery from this disaster, come share your experiences during and after the fire and how it has impacted your life. The ESC Team serves alongside the Long Term Recovery Group of the Pikes Peak Region and can refer those struggling with the aftermath to further support through that group if needed.
