The City of Fort Collins (FC) Volunteer Program is designed to creatively engage people in their unique talents. Everyone has unique talents, and when those are paired with a passion to help the results can be amazing. With that aim, the City promotes volunteer involvement to improve services and create community.
Adopt A Neighbor
Volunteers will assist neighbors with tasks such as snow shoveling, leaf raking, grocery shopping, picking up medications, and pet care. Specific needs and schedules will vary, and there are opportunities for long-term pairings with one neighbor as well as one-time tasks.
Butterfly House Volunteers
The Butterfly House is a year-round home to hundreds of North American butterflies and dozens of varieties of flowering plants, built and operated in partnership with the Butterfly Pavilion.
