A Seat at Our Table
Your generous support has provided many seats—seats that have led to transformed lives for so many men and women in the Northern Colorado community. Despite the many unknowns of 2021, your partnership ensures that we will continue to change lives, one seat at a time. Thank you!
We are changing lives in the name of Christ by meeting people at their physical and spiritual points of need with the goal of returning them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.

Who You Help
“Harvest Farm as a community really gave me the security that I needed. The atmosphere seemed to work in my life and point me in new directions. I never included Jesus into my recovery until I got to Harvest Farm. When I came here, He took all my withdrawals. Recovery, to me, is Jesus breaking the chains of my addictions and me not hooking myself back up.”Tim, New Life Program graduate
“I grew up homeless. My dad would work at one job and then he’d get fired, and the next thing you know, we’ve got to move again. The Mission has given me hope when I was lacking [during] the worst part of my life. They will go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable [and] take all the possible steps that you need to succeed. The people who donate their time and their money, it’s them who keep this place going. God bless you, and thank you.”Preston, Fort Collins Rescue Mission guest
“They closed everything down because of the virus, so the homeless had nowhere to go, so we came here. They have helped us a lot. And [we] thank God for that. [We’re] hoping to get back on [our] two feet again.”Joseph and Debbie, Northside Aztlan Community Center guests

A Letter from Our CEO
What does it mean to have a seat at the Mission’s table? It means that because of your support, we provide seats for people in need at Fort Collins Rescue Mission and Harvest Farm. But it is about more than just welcoming someone to sit down for a meal. Each seat represents a person, and each person has a story that is important to God.
As a result of COVID-19, we had to shift seats to provide basic care and safety to the most vulnerable individuals in our community—those who did not have a home to go to. With the opening of a temporary shelter to enable social distancing, our tables looked different this year. But our Mission stayed the same: Changing Lives in the Name of Christ. I want to thank you for your compassion, empathy and generosity for the people we serve. In fact, they are not only the people we serve and love, but the people you serve and love too.
