"Galen"

“Galen” was evacuated by boat from his flooded home in rural Coffey County. Red Cross helped him get a motel room, but this money soon ran out. Galen used his remaining funds for medications and food. ECKAN assisted him with 7 motel days so he will be able to return to his home and begin clean up. Without ECKAN’s help, Galen would have become homeless.
