Transforming Lives: Making Homelessness Rare, Short-Lived, and Non-Recurring

At Family Housing Network (FHN), we hold a vision where family homelessness in Fort Collins is a rare, short-lived, and non-recurring issue. It's more than just a dream; it's a mission we're wholeheartedly dedicated to.

This mission comes to life through the incredible generosity of individuals like you, collaborative community partnerships, and the strong will of each family we serve.

In Northern Colorado, the concept of making homelessness rare, short-lived, and non-recurring is a shared goal among many organizations committed to ending homelessness. But what does this vision mean for families in Fort Collins who are experiencing homelessness? To truly understand its impact, let us introduce you to a family whose story embodies hope and resilience.

Meet the G. family of three. Just a few weeks ago, they found themselves grappling with the daunting challenges of homelessness. Their situation was compounded by the fact that the mother had recently undergone a C-section, leaving them with no place to go after her hospital discharge. For this family, being on the streets was the last thing they needed. However, thanks to the unwavering support of individuals like you, their journey transformed into one of hope and resilience.

The G. family found themselves at our Day Center, ready for intake. They were quickly enrolled in our overnight program, utilizing the resources of the Day Center to stabilize their immediate needs. In a remarkably short span of two months, they secured employment and are now preparing to move into permanent housing. Their success story is a testament to the compassion and dedication of people like you. Without your support, this remarkable transformation would not have been possible.

Family homelessness often becomes a recurring cycle that is challenging to break. Yet, with your dedication, we're crafting solutions that extend beyond providing temporary relief. We're offering the necessary resources and support to empower families to regain their independence, ensuring that homelessness becomes a short-lived chapter in their lives.

To make family homelessness rare, short-lived, and non-recurring, it requires a collaborative effort from the community, individuals like you who aspire for positive change, and the resilience of the families we serve. FHN strongly emphasizes that family homelessness should be an infrequent, brief occurrence, rather than a recurring and persistent problem. Our aim is to provide solutions and support that break the cycle of homelessness, ensuring that families do not experience homelessness repeatedly.

By ending homelessness for this family, they are breaking a cycle of chronic homelessness and trauma they have been living in. It's a profound transformation.

When this mother first learned she was expecting, she had a single wish – to provide her baby with a nursery and a safe, stable place to call home. With your unwavering support, that dream has now become a reality for this family

We exist because of the compassion and support of individuals like you, and we exist for families like the G. family.

Join us in this transformative mission. Together, we can bring light to the darkest of nights.
