Soup Supper and Gold Glove Award

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

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.

​​Catching Families Before They Fall.
