In November 2021, many of the communities we serve and live in were devastated by historic floods. While it’s hard to know the full extent of the damage, we know our hearts were broken for our friends, families, colleagues, neighbors, and community as a whole. Our spirits were buoyed by the efforts of so many of our partners and dedicated community members as they work to respond quickly and effectively in these initial recovery stages.

We at the Opportunity Council will continue to serve the community as we have for nearly 60 years—steadfast in our belief that as a community, we can make sure everyone has the chance to thrive and contribute. We will continue our efforts to make sure everyone has a safe, secure place to call home, every child has the start in life they deserve, and every person has the resources they need to get their basic needs met.

We will continue to monitor the community response and share additional resources as they become available.
