The Northside Aztlan Community Center acting as a temporary 24/7 shelter for the last few months will be closing this Friday, June 19. While the City of Fort Collins is still working on temporary overnight shelter options, we are continuing to serve our vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness. Here at Fort Collins Rescue Mission, we are able to accommodate men and women for overnight shelter at half capacity.
We are pleased to be serving meals again at the Mission this Friday, June 19 including breakfast, to-go sack lunches and dinner. In order to maintain social distancing, we will serve only 20 people at a time. Our staff will also be working with the Health District of Northern Larimer County to establish health screening, hand washing and other health protocols to keep our community safe. During breakfast service we will be handing out the sack lunches.
Volunteers Are Still Needed
Throughout this health crisis, our volunteers have simply been amazing to work with. Every single day, people from our community have worked tirelessly to serve meals and help keep our critical services available to people in need. If you are able to volunteer with us, please sign up today.
Your donations make all the services we provide possible, from meals and shelter to connecting people in need with long-term programs that will help them change their lives.
Thank you for partnering with us to help our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.
