Homeless Gear

Homeless Gear logoHomeless Gear is a Fort Collins-based nonprofit that provides a continuum of services to individuals and families who are homeless or — in some cases — at risk of becoming homeless: supplies that help them survive in the short-term, connections to resources in the interim and links to employment, housing and self-sufficiency in the long-term.

We operate six programs that, collectively, help the people we serve to meet their basic needs, move forward, obtain employment, find housing and regain self-sufficiency. We are also the Manager of the Murphy Center for Hope, a local resource center for people experiencing homelessness.

We serve individuals and families who are homeless or-at risk of becoming homeless. The people we serve represent a broad cross-section of our community. Our clients include individuals and families of all ages, races, colors, creeds, national origins, genders, sexual orientation, marital statuses, military statuses and disabilities.

Survival is a prerequisite to self-sufficiency. Through our Distribution program, we provide people with the supplies that they need to survive, meet their basic needs and regain stability. Through our other programs, we help those same individuals access resources, obtain benefits, find employment, locate housing and escape homelessness.
