MILLIKEN - It will take months, if not years, for some people to rebuild their homes after September's devastating floods that swept through Colorado.
In Milliken, a mobile home community is relying mostly on volunteers to help them rebuild.
On Thursday, more than two dozen volunteers gave up their day to help homeowners clean up the messes in front of their homes and inside their homes.
"I've been helped out a lot in my life, so anytime I can give back, I give to someone else," volunteer Kendra Galeana said.
Most homes in the community are considered unlivable right now. Signs are dotted on the side of them, warning people to stay out.
"When you're removed from the situation, you don't realize how bad it is," Galeana said.
People who live in the community or who have family in the area are grateful. They said they haven't received much assistance from anyone else.
"It's a lot of help. It means a lot," said Angelina Billerla, whose parents live in Milliken.
Volunteers spent several hours cleaning the site Thursday. They plan to return on Saturday.
