There are many reasons a family may become homeless, including job loss, divorce, and illness, just to name a few. In the past , several large natural disasters have added to the list of reasons that have contributed to homelessness in our country.
In May of 2013, an EF5 tornado – the most destructive on the Tornado scale – tore through Moore, Oklahoma killing 24 people and causing massive destruction to the area. Hundreds of homes and buildings were destroyed and thousands of lives were affected.
This tragedy hit far from Colorado, but Colorado Homeless Families (CHF) was equipped to help in any way possible.
