Our mission is “to prevent homelessness before it starts by providing emergency rental assistance, financial management tools and supportive referrals to households within the Poudre School District.”

Imagine living a paycheck away from homelessness. Since 2001 HPI has helped more than 21,000 individuals remain in their homes with one emergency rental assistance check. If you need help this month, please visit one of our volunteer intake locations.

Our Mission

THANK YOU!  Through the Whole Foods program, HPI raised $1,800 to help prevent homelessness. 

While most of us struggle with maintaining a basic budget, imagine the frustration of knowing that the one thing many of us can always count on – a roof over our heads – is in jeopardy.

The Homelessness Prevention Initiative is a local, grassroots emergency support resource for working families living within the Poudre School District who face the possibility of homelessness.

Calling all supporters!  HPI is currently collecting silent and live auction items for our  15th anniversary gala on October 22 at the Fort Collins Hilton.  If you've got something to donate, please contact the office for a pick up. HPI will provide a tax donation receipt for your donation.


Our intake centers are run 100% by dedicated volunteers. Join the team in making a difference in the lives of local residents.

​​Catching Families Before They Fall.

It's summer time and that means HPI just mailed our our summer donation letters.  Please consider giving to HPI during this campaign.  Many families are not able to enjoy the beautiful Colorado summer because they are worried about next month's rent.  They live in constant un-rest.  Your donation today will help make sure HPI can support these households.  Please give what you can either when the mailer arrives in your mailbox, or by using this online donation link.  Every donation makes a difference to a local family.
