Free Workshops on How to Ensure Your Home is Properly Insured

As many of you know, one of the hard lessons of the Fourmile Canyon Fire was that over 60% of property owners were underinsured.

Foothills United Way has hired a colleague of Karen Reimus at United Policyholders to come to Boulder and provide three workshops (Nov. 30 and Dec. 1) on how to properly insure your home.
