The Black Forest fire left behind ashes and headaches.
Those who lost their homes to the Black Forest Fire
face a major decision: whether to rebuild, buy an existing home somewhere else, or just take their insurance money and run.
Thankfully, the experienced staff at the nonprofit United Policyholders
know the benefits and drawbacks of each option. They'll share their expertise at a “Roadmap to Recovery
” workshop, hosted in partnership with El Paso County
, from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9. The workshop will also include advice on "filling insurance gaps, financial planning information, and loan and construction financing options."
The free workshop will be held at the Woodmen Heights Campus of Woodmen Valley Chapel
, at 8292 Woodmen Valley View, near the intersection of Woodmen and Marksheffel roads.
