Overnight Shelter

DSC_0025FFH’s Emergency Overnight Shelter Program accommodates four guest families (up to 22 parents and children) at a time.  Each family receives

  • a private family room in which to sleep and keep possessions
  • warm, nutritious evening meals
  • breakfast each morning
  • packed snacks and lunch to go if desired
  • gracious hospitality and volunteer support from FFH member

Fifteen host congregations, each supported by a partner congregation, rotate each week to welcome FFH guest families into their buildings.  Self-directed volunteer teams, following established FFH Guest and Host Guidelines, provide for the range of hosting duties.

By housing four families each night, FFH has been able to double Fort Collin’s family sheltering capacity and expand support needed for families to become permanently stabilized.

The expected stay for our guest families is generally up to three months, however we retain flexibility due to the varying stabilization needs of our families upon program entry.
