Family Promise of Larimer County
Family Promise, a program of House of Neighborly Service, serves children and families experiencing homelessness. Families accepted into the 60-day Shelter Program are warmly welcomed and immediately provided all of the resources HNS has to offer. Following the best practices of Family Promise National, each family’s situation is assessed and goals are prioritized, such as: sustainable employment, establishing safe childcare and school enrollment for children.
Common barriers that keep families from competing in the tight housing market in Colorado are:
- Poor credit history
- Past evictions/property debt, utility debts/collections
- Lack of living-wage employment
These are areas that our case managers, partnered with other agencies in the community, will help Family Promise participants address.
Families in the Shelter Program are hosted at a partner hotel up to 60 days; room renewals are done on a weekly basis after each family’s case management meeting and as progress is made. Adults are connected to vital resources, including but not limited to House of Neighborly Service and other partners within Life Center and surrounding community. Accountability is essential for families to address their barriers to housing. The program requires limited spending, budgeting, debt reduction, repairing credit issues, and establishing savings.
Children of school age may qualify to be transported by the Thompson R2-J School District to keep them in their current school as possible.

Alternative Shelter for Homeless Families
Family Promise of Larimer County partners with the local churches throughout the year to host families experiencing homelessness. Due to COVID, churches have had to opt-out of hosting families participating in the shelter program. Our team is being proactive in raising funds so that the alternate shelter options can remain in place giving families the continued opportunity to become housing ready.
Give today to help shelter families experiencing homelessness.
