On June 22nd, the town of Portland was devastated when a tornado passed through the town. Current State's Neighbors in Action segment this week looks at the Portland Community Association Fund, which has added a Portland Disaster Relief Fund to its work in the community.

A dispute between neighbors or a fight between high school students are pretty common. But sometimes those disputes become contentious and can land people in court or end with students suspended or expelled. For this week’s Neighbors in Action segment, we talk with Resolution Services, a non-profit that helps people resolve those conflicts before they get to that point.

On this week’s Neighbors in Action segment, Current State catches up with Tashmica Torok, founder of The Firecracker Foundation. The non-profit helps children who have been the victims of sexual abuse find treatment and support and is celebrating its second anniversary this week.

Our Neighbors in Action segment this week looks at Camp Liberty in Jackson County. It’s a volunteer operation that gives veterans a chance to spend time outdoors enjoying activities like fishing, hunting, hiking and canoeing.
