Homelessness Prevention Initiative

Soup Supper and Gold Glove Award

Annual Soup Supper and Gold Glove Award: November 5


Join us at this annual event, held at the Fort Collins Marriott, on Thursday, November 5 at 5:30pm.  HPI serves a gourmet soup supper (much like you would receive in a soup kitchen if you needed a meal), and we promise much more excitement.  Attendees will play a dinner game, much like the board game, "Payday" and we'll see who has enough money at the end of the month to pay for rent.  We will also honor Rich Thompson, President of the InterFaith Council and longtime community supporter of homelessness assistance. Rich will receive the Gold Glove Award for catching families before they fall.  Want to attend?  Call 970-221-1553 and reserve your space.

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  provide emergency rental assistance and supportive assistance to those in need.

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.
