Outreach Fort Collins is a street based outreach program to maintain our downtown as a safe and welcoming place while connecting our community’s most vulnerable to the services and supportive networks they need. It is a professionally staffed, on-the-street team who will build relationships with community members, service providers, businesses and city services as a means to address and deescalate disruptive behaviors downtown.
Many service providers have made changes to their services in response to the Covid-19 virus. We’re trying to support by keeping an updated spreadsheet of what everyone is doing.
In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak happening around the world, we wanted to update you regarding how Outreach Fort Collins is implementing precautionary measures in order to help our clients, employees, partners, and community stay healthy. In response to these concerns, Outreach Fort Collins will be ceasing in-person outreach operations from 3/17/20 through 4/18/20 in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to our highly vulnerable and resource limited clients.
Individuals experiencing homelessness can still access shelter services at this time. Shelter information is located here:
For information on other services, please refer to the Homeless Resource Guide, located here:
During this time, our staff will be available on call at 970-658-0088 to answer questions and provide referrals to homeless and at-risk individuals in the community. Our on call hours during this period will be 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Saturday. We will continue to work with community service partners to provide the most rapid and up-to-date response as more information is learned and options become available.
Any additional information regarding services or COVID-19 response will be communicated through social media, newsletters, and shared via this website.
If you need assistance and Outreach Fort Collins is unavailable, please contact Fort Collins Police Services non-emergency dispatch at 970-221-6540. For emergencies, dial 911.
Thank you and be safe!
