How soundly would you sleep in the cold, without a tent, sleeping bag or coat? How would you keep track of your belongings if you had to carry them with you, all of the time, in a thin, black trash bag? Escaping homelessness is hard enough without these extra burdens. It is hard enough to land a job, find a home and take care of your family. But it is even harder—maybe even impossible—to do those things while you struggle to survive.

How do I get help?

We distribute products through:

  • Gear Room at the Murphy Center for Hope (242 Conifer Street, Fort Collins).  Ask the Front Desk staff for an order form
  • Street Outreach on Sunday nights in the community (currently suspended due to COVID-19)
  • Shipments to 50+ organizations that serve people who are homeless across Colorado
  • Distribution Events throughout Northern Colorado
  • Please contact Brennan Snyder, Distribution Coordinator, by email or phone (970) 829-1151 for questions about the Distribution Program
