About

What if someone told you that YOUR efforts could directly result in a local homeless family finding housing, not just for this month but for years to come? What if your talents, interests & skills could be shared with someone who lacks a support system, resulting in safety and stability for the family and ending a cycle of poverty?

Come learn how you can directly support a Fort Collins family to lift them out of homelessness and provide a stable future! Our volunteers with the One Village One Family program have assisted over two dozen families (including almost 50 children) out of homelessness and into stable housing. Over two years since the programs inception, every single family is still housed.

The program works by matching 4-6 adult volunteers with a family experiencing homelessness. The "Village" supports the family in finding sustainable housing, setting goals, serving as a sounding board for problems and concerns, and celebrates each success. Additional details are available here: www.homelessgear.org/ovof
