Flooding along the Front Range in Colorado devastated the homes of many immigrant families living close to the poverty line.

Some didn’t have time to collect key documents before fleeing. Others aren’t sure if they qualify for federal aid.

Hundreds, maybe thousands, of families could be homeless and without their documents.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network,  Lesley McClurg of Colorado Public Radio visited two hard-hit communities in Northern Colorado, and has their stories.
