As we continue to process all of the emotions and ways we have been impacted by the Marshall Fire, join us for lunch and a conversation. We will be led by two licensed counselors who will provide education around grief and healing from community trauma.

Whether you've lost your home, have been displaced, or have struggled watching so many in our community lose so much, you are welcome here.

Please consider joining us and invite anyone else who might benefit.

One of the values of Ascent is PERSONAL. As a community we want to care for the people impacted by the Marshall Fire in a personal way by pairing households to care for the long haul.

You will not be on your own in this. We will send out ideas, encouragement and ways to support you as you care for your household.

Fire Response Fund

Ascent has created a fund to meet the needs of our community as we respond to the Marshall Fire. To give, select the "give one time" gift type and "fire response fund" under the giving type drop down menu.

For Those In Need:

  • Support through Prayer - We believe in the power of prayer at Ascent and in a God who "is close to the brokenhearted" (Psalm 34:18). We are in this with you, share how we can pray with and for you or request a call from our Prayer Team.

  • Free Legal Services Available through May​ - The East County Housing Opportunity Coalition (ECHO) announces a generous donation from Ascent Community Church in Louisville to help provide no-cost legal services to fire survivors. ECHO is making free legal services available through the law office of Stephen Hennessy to Marshall Fire survivors. Those affected by the fire can request legal assistance on the ECHO website, https://www.echocolorado.com/legal-clinic, by downloading the form for requesting legal services and submitting it there. ECHO has been doing interviews with renters post-fire and has found that many of them have issues regarding consumer protection practices and habitability of units post-fire. Many renters have spent their own time and effort to secure remediation and may need legal assistance in reimbursements. The resources from Ascent Community church should provide ECHO resources to manage these free legal services through the end of May. So, sign up right away if you need legal assistance. ECHO will manage these free legal services through the end of May. So, sign up right away if you need legal assistance.
