Testimonials

A single father of two children, ages 3 and 9, came in holding his utility bills.  He had received House of Neighborly Service's information with his shutoff notice and came to see if we could help.  He lost a good paying job and the new one he found to replace it does not pay as much, causing them to struggle financially.  He said he has gone without food to pay his utility bill.  When asked if he would like a food basket, his response was, "Is it free?".  We were able to provide food for his family, pay off his utility bills, provide a gas voucher to help him get to work, and resources for food stamps, LEAP, housing assistance and affordable options for childcare.

Background Statement

"Help for Today" refers to the immediate services we provide to families and individuals that come to HNS with emergency requests when their situation has reached a critical level of need.

"Hope for Tomorrow" describes the further assistance that is provided when resource navigators meet individually with each client as they help them with essential services, referrals to other services, scheduling of educational classes, or phone calls made on their behalf to increase their success within the current situation as we help stabilize families and prevent further crises.

In 2022, HNS provided 42,033 services to 5,405 people through the food pantry, clothing program, utility/transportation/prescription assistance, Parents as Teachers, family navigators, Family Promise of Larimer County (a program for families experiencing homelessness), Guiding Connections (a program for adults experiencing homelessness), Holiday, Birthday, and Back To School Programs.

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND

House of Neighborly Service is a home-grown agency started in 1961 by the ministerial council of churches and other Southern Larimer County residents to help neighbors that were facing critical situations. They believed in establishing one organized central agency to meet many of the emergency needs that poverty-stricken individuals and families faced then and still are facing today. On January 5, 1968, HNS was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado. Today HNS remains a vital part of our community. HNS is a BBB Accredited Charity.
