Southern Minnesota Floods

About Our Southern MN Flood Project

In late June 2018, widespread storms caused flooding in large parts of Southern Minnesota – as well as Iowa and other states. Our work is focused on Fairbault, Cottonwood, and Murray Counties assisting the MN VOAD and partner agencies provide assistance to storm-affected families.

NECHAMA is providing technical and administrative support for all MN and National VOAD members responding to the events.


At this time we are not accepting volunteers. Check back for more information.
