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.
Due to Larimer County COVID-19 restrictions and to protect against any staffing capacity shortages that would impact our team's work on the streets, Outreach Fort Collins has adjusted on call hours. During this time, OFC staff are still available to respond to service referrals and community concerns and will maintain a consistent presence throughout our coverage area.
Current OFC On Call Hours: Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm
Many service providers have made changes to their services in response to the Covid-19 virus. Outreach Fort Collins is maintaining an updated spreadsheet of available resources and any Covid related restrictions.
Outreach Fort Collins is also distributing an up-to-date flyer for Fort Collins shelters and services.
