Long Term Recovery Group

Region 1


Together We Rise

River 2 Ridge Disaster Resilience Group (also known as the Long Term Recovery Group Region 1) is providing resources and connections for people in Crawford, La Crosse, Monroe, and Vernon counties who are working to recover from a natural disaster.

Current relief efforts are for those who experienced damage in the flooding of August/September of 2018.

Estimates from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) show more than 900 families and and more than  90 businesses in this region were impacted by floodwaters.  River 2 Ridge is a group of volunteers striving to make sure each person and each business is able to access as many available resources as possible to continue on the road to recovery.


Together We Rise

The R2RDR group, in partnership with national Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD), has hired case managers to assess the remaining unmet needs of individuals and businesses in Vernon, Crawford, Monroe and La Crosse counties.

In the meantime, the collaborative is gathering resources, from financial contributions, to volunteers, to in-kind donations to small loans to help as many people, without duplication, as possible.  Priorities for funding involve safety, health and loss of income.
