Our programs and services are designed to help people experiencing homelessness connect with solutions that best fit their unique situations. Whether you need emergency services like meals and shelter or a more long-term solution like our Steps to Success program or New Life Program, we are here to help.
If you or your loved ones are in immediate need of food, you are welcome to join us for Breakfast or dinner at Fort Collins Rescue Mission.
Emergency shelter is available 365 days of the year for men and women in need. If you are homeless and want to escape the dangers of sleeping on the street, you are welcome to sign up for a bed at our shelter.
Shelter beds are assigned daily through a random lottery. All guests must sign up for a bed each day in order to receive a bed assignment.
If you find yourself homeless or have suffered from addiction, abuse or other negative and destructive habits that have caused you to become homeless, we invite you to join the Mission’s Steps to Success Program to make a lasting change in your life. In the program, participants are given the opportunity to become productive, self-sufficient members of society as they work toward living in healthy community relationships.

“I like having integrity, being responsible, paying rent, and being a productive member of society. And I know I could not have done it without Harvest Farm.”Jeremiah, New Life Program graduate
While in the program, you may be able to earn your GED or go on to higher education. Some qualifying graduates also receive a vehicle. Progress in the program brings increased responsibility and freedom, the reward of graduation, and a new life!
The four main goals of the program are to see long-term change in the following areas:
Drug and alcohol abuse, poor financial decisions, unhealthy relationships and other destructive habits can cause anyone to think a “new life” is out of reach. Our goal is to see New Life Program participants like you transformed by overcoming destructive habits. By immersing yourself in the program, you will receive the help you need and experience victory over life-draining behaviors.
In the New Life Program, you will learn to build and maintain healthy community relationships. These relationships encourage accountability and foster continued productive participation in society.
As you advance through the program and pursue financial goals you set alongside Mission staff, you will eventually obtain sustainable, full-time employment or equivalent income.
Finally, the ultimate goal of the New Life Program is to see each participant graduate and provide for their own sustainable housing needs.
