From Recovery to Reform

We’re thankful that many people who’ve used our Roadmap to Recovery services over the years have followed through on volunteering with UP. These superstars have gone above and beyond… pitching in on legislative reform efforts, flying out of state to present at a UP workshop…being a listening ear for distraught disaster victims evenings and weekends. People like Karen Reimus and Ken Klein, (Cedar Fire, 2003) Renee VanHeel and Jacques Lord (Witch Creek Fire 2007) and Bruce Honeyman (Fourmile Canyon Fire 2010) rejected the “victim” label
and use their “survivor” energy to change lives and laws for the better. (See related article in this issue on Colorado insurance reform).
