N2N opens doors and advances lives from homelessness through homeownership by providing sustainable housing, supportive services, and education to the Larimer County community.
Neighbor to Neighbor grew out of a grassroots movement in 1970. In a poor neighborhood in northeast Fort Collins, a large family was about to lose their home. Their neighbors joined together and successfully raised money to keep this family from becoming homeless. This spirit of giving and compassion led to the founding of N2N. Since then, our programs have expanded to meet the growing need for affordable housing and self-sufficiency programs in Larimer County, including our HUD-Certified Renter and Home Ownership programs and our Affordable Housing program. N2N serves over 5,000 individuals each year.
"We are no longer homeless. Now I have an apartment when my grandchildren and 93 year old mother visit." -Marcella
"I was desperate. I had less than 3 weeks to vacate my apartment. N2N helped me with resources, counseled, and were very understanding. Once I found a trailer they helped with the 1st month rent. They were very pleasant and explained every detail what would help. I am very grateful." -Deanna
"My family was traveling when we had a vehicle issue. The repair really caused us to dip into our account and made us short on our following month's rent. I contacted N2N and they explained what I needed and suggested maybe HPI could also help. I am writing to share heart-felt thanks for the assistance that I received from N2N and HPI. I am a veteran who never asks for anything unless I earn it. This was my first time and I will not ask again. I will make sure I'm not in this position again. Again, thank you so much. God bless you." -Manny
"I was a victim of the 2013 Colorado floods. My family lost all of our household income at once. Our life took a drastic change of course from a fruitful annual salary as a head chef to trying to survive. N2N helped with Emergency Rent Assistance that allowed me to keep our roof over our heads. I owe a huge, heartfelt thank you to Neighbor to Neighbor for making it possible." -Adam, Loveland
"Moving to an affordable apartment at N2N has been the best move for my family. Everything N2N does is to help better the community and to help those who are unsure how to build their foundation, by giving them the helping hands and support they need." -Ayanna, Fort Collins
"I am a survivor of domestic violence along with my son. During our stay at the shelter, my advocate made me aware of N2N. Not only was N2N able to help me reduce my first months rent, they gave me wonderful tools that will help me learn to budget my money. Because of that, I feel confident in being able to control my life more, and to teach my son how to manage his money so he is never in this situation. Thank you, N2N!" -anonymous mom
