Tim Ward’s Journey of Surviving the Oso Mudslide

Lutheran Community Services Northwest is there over the long haul.

This is Tim Ward’s story of healing. He is one of nine people who survived the massive mudslide near Oso, WA on the morning of March 22, 2014. Forty-three people died in the slide, including Ward’s wife.

Ward was part of our survivor’s support group. Developed in response to the mudslide, LCS Northwest opened the Arlington Community Resource Center (ACRC). The support group started meeting at ACRC in January of 2105.

Ward also talks about how survivors eventually worked together to help out some of the area’s less fortunate residents. This is an emotional story.
