The Day Center is staffed by volunteers on Saturdays from 9-4. This gives the staff an opportunity to recharge and rejuvenate for the next week. Saturdays are usually split into two shifts, 9-12:30 and 12:30-4. We usually only need one volunteer per shift. Saturday volunteers help our families experiencing homelessness by maintaining a safe environment and help with keeping things running smoothly in the facility.
About Family Housing Network of Fort Collins
300 E OAK ST, FORT COLLINS, CO 80524, US
FFH'S mission is to support families experiencing homelessness in order for them to achieve sustainable self-sufficiency in a timely and dignified manner. We provide a full range of emergency and stabilizing services needed by our guest parents and children, in collaboration with a diverse set of faith communities and partner agencies.
Beginning in 2011, Faith Family Hospitality began to address a pressing need for emergency shelter in Larimer County for families experiencing homelessness. Since January 2012, FFH has hosted 175 families - 26 adults and 395 children - over 2,400 nights in a row of shelter. In addition to FFH's early beginnings of emergency overnight shelter, the agency has grown to incorporate a Day Center, Case Management and construction has begun on Sherwood House, a bridge housing program. With the expansion, the agency has taken on a new name, Family Housing Network. FHN encompasses all four programs and Faith Family Hospitality remains the name of the overnight shelter portion of the program. With the help of the FHN program, 86% of parents find employment and 68% of our families find housing!
