Plymouth Congregation Sleep Out was held on December 5.  HPI Executive Director, Amanda Hodge, slept out on the church lawn with about 30 area youth. Together the group raised about $10,000!


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.


It's time to hustle and bustle through the malls for all those holiday gifts!  Or, when the weather outside is frightful, shop from your computer and support HPI when you do.  Get everyone on your list a fresh bag of Rebel Popcorn!  Their flavors are so delicious, you can't eat just one'll eat the whole bag!  These make perfect stocking stuffers, teacher gifts or leave one in the mailbox for the mailman!  Next on your list, the woman who has everything...try a Pampermint Foot Care Set!  Arbonne sells a multitude of wonderful products, however the Pampermint Foot Scrub is the one that is benefiting HPI this season and it's listed in "specials" on Deanne's Arbonne website.  Shop early, when this product runs out, it's gone for the season.  And lastly, when you shop Amazon, use AmazonSmile and link your Amazon account to HPI as your charity of choice (my account, settings, change your charity).  Whenever you shop, HPI will receive a donation!  When you shop this holiday season, you can also help keep your friends and neighbors in their homes during a crisis.  It makes the holidays feel that much more magical.

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.
