Founded in 1961, House of Neighborly Service was formed to meet the emergency needs of those facing crisis. Thanks to their united vision and by pooling their resources to create one central location, HNS has become a meaningful part of the fabric of Northern Colorado. While the organization has evolved over time, our sense of purpose has remained the same – to serve those in need with help, resources and hope.
HNS is a Christian-based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exemplifies the love of Jesus Christ through caring service to those in need.
We serve all people regardless of their age, disability, sex, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, or faith. Many of our clients are young working families who are struggling to make ends meet, or single parents who are trying to provide basic needs for their families and to keep their families safe. We also serve clients who are on fixed incomes such as senior citizens, veterans, people with disabilities, and people experiencing job loss due to illness or employment layoff.
Approximately half of our clients are school-aged children within the families that we serve.
HNS provides basic needs including food, clothing, utility, transportation, and prescription assistance (and more) to households that have incomes at or below 70% Area Medium Income (i.e. $61,040 annual income for a family of four).
We also provide comprehensive emergency and basic needs services, case management, and long-term solutions to help people overcome situational crises or escape the grips of poverty.
HNS does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, rights guaranteed by state or federal law, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, and vendors. Further, it is the policy of HNS to provide language access services at no charge to populations of persons with limited English proficiency (LEP) and persons with a disability who are served by HNS, including interpretation and translation services. HNS will make reasonable accommodations for persons in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
HNS will not proselytize. This means that HNS will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith. At House of Neighborly Service, the client (you) sets the tone and agenda for each conversation.
