House of Neighborly Services:
It can be challenging or impossible to focus on one’s own core mental health needs when struggling with financial stability. Ideally, both physical and mental health needs are met at the same time in order to provide safety needed to move in a healing direction. The House of Neighborly Services has resources and connections to assist those struggling in Larimer County with groceries (including food drop-off, if need-be), rental and utility assistance, stable housing, job coaching and employment. Additionally, life skills educational classes on topics such as parenting and cooking are also available (finance classes coming soon). Prescription assistance and gas/bus vouchers to get to medical appointments can also be requested.
To find out if you meet the income level requirements of these programs, please visit https://www.honservice.org/services/emergency-services-basic-needs.html and/or call the phone number representing the city closest to you.
