Hello! Welcome back to the Analytive Podcast.
Back in 2013, the Northern Colorado area was hit with massive flooding. Experts called it a “500-year flood”. In fact, Estes Park which is only about 45 minutes from where I lived, was virtually impossible to get into or out of.
In fact, getting people out of Estes was the largest airlift since hurricane Katrina.
And in the middle of all of this was one organization: Serve 68.
Serve 68 is born out of a collection of local churches in Northern Colorado where we’re based. They take unique approaches to solve problems using creative solutions.
One of my favorite stories was told after I’d stopped the recording. There’s a widow here in town who is battling cancer. For that reason, she is unable to make a real income and traditional support structures didn’t provide the level of help she needed.
Serve 68 went out and partnered with a bunch of local businesses and came up with a solution. Instead of just giving her money to live on, they helped her finish her basement (including installing a bathroom and kitchenette) that she can rent out.
That rental is currently providing enough for her to live off of.
I’ve been involved with Serve68 officially and unofficially for many years and love the work they do. If you’re looking to be inspired by creative solutions to community problems, you’ll love this interview.
So without further ado, here’s my interview with the founder and executive director of Serve 68 – Mike Walker.
