Colorado Gives Day: December 6


15th Anniversary Gala and Gold glove awards

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

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

get help


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.




Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 22 at 6:00 p.m. at the Fort Collins Hilton!  We'll be celebrating 15 years of HPI...$2 million in rental aid given out and more than 17,000 people saved.  The night begins with our silent auction (think about getting a cruiser bike or golf for 4 at the Country Club) and live action dinner stations where you can have your selection of fantastic dinner items.  Enjoy our string musicians and a glass of wine.  And then the fun begins.  The Auction Diva's will be hosting our live auction!  We'll offer international trips, private dinner parties and art masterpieces.  We will also be bidding for the cover shot of our Community Who Cares calendar (think Senator Kefalas, the PSD School Board, Fort Collins Police and more!).  To end the evening we will celebrate our founder, Sister Mary Alice Murphy, and present her with the 2016 Gold Glove Award.  You can't miss this event of the year.  Invitations are mailed in late August, or you can email us at if you'd like to attend. Tickets are $100 pp.  Oh, What A Night!
