Adopt A Neighbor Program#

We are in a unique and uncertain time, but we are in it together. The coronavirus situation puts some of our friends, families and neighbors at greater risk. Yet, with all the uncertainty, we have the chance to show the world that Fort Collins is a truly exceptional community that rises up to help one another.

The City is seeking healthy volunteers to assist with services to our vulnerable populations. We are launching an expansion of the Adopt A Neighbor program to pair volunteers with neighbors in need during the current pandemic. Volunteers will assist neighbors who are vulnerable to COVID-19 with regular tasks, such as grocery shopping and delivery, picking up medications, driveway shoveling, and outdoor pet care/dog walking. Specific needs and schedules will vary and need to be coordinated by the volunteer and neighbor they are paired with for the program.
