Homeless service leaders from different organizations and backgrounds in Northern Colorado have come together to form the Fort Collins homelessness committee. The group’s purpose is to recommend new or improved services for the city’s homeless population.

Josh Geppelt, Denver Rescue Mission’s Vice President of Programs, is on the board. The Coloradoan recently published an article about the committee and asked Geppelt how he felt about a centralized campus.
