Stable housing is vital to individual, family and community health.
Without meeting basic housing needs, families struggle with other needs such as meals, education, employment and health care. Neighbor to Neighbor is the primary housing resource for Larimer County residents, with services fostering the basic human need for stable housing for people from the homeless to homeowners. N2N supports Larimer County residents with three key service areas:
- Renter and Affordable Housing Programs
- Homeownership Programs
- Preventing and Ending Homelessness
Community support drives the success of N2N to be able to prevent homelessness for over 8,000 households in Larimer County last year, while also preventing foreclosure for 90% of cases, educating nearly 1,500 households working toward homeownership annually, maintaining affordable apartments for over 300 adults and children, and offering supportive programs for youth and residents.
The mission of Neighbor to Neighbor is to open doors and advance lives from homelessness through homeownership by providing sustainable housing, supportive services, and education to families and individuals primarily in Larimer County.
We envision communities where everyone has opportunity and access to a stable home because home is the foundation for success.
Neighbor to Neighbor grew out of a grassroots movement in 1970.
In a neighborhood in northeast Fort Collins, a large family was about to lose their home. Their neighbors joined together and successfully raised enough money to keep the family from becoming homeless. This spirit of giving and compassion led to the founding of N2N. Since then, programs have expanded to meet the growing need for affordable housing and self-sufficiency programs in Larimer County, including our HUD-Certified Renter and Home Ownership programs and our Affordable Housing program. Today, N2N serves over 5,000 individuals each year.
At Neighbor to Neighbor, we strive to create safe spaces where our neighbors are free to be their full, authentic selves. We are committed to providing full access to our housing stability services to communities of color and underserved communities.
