General

  • Mission:
  • Our Mission: To promote self-sufficiency and provide housing assistance for the homeless and those in need.

  • Overview:
  • Almost Home's goals are:

    1) To provide shelter for any family or person from the service area who may be homeless.
    HOW WE MEET THIS GOAL: We run a six-family, 30 bed shelter. Families can stay for up to 45.

    2) To provide case management services to assist them in finding housing and improving their self-sufficiency.
    HOW WE MEET THIS GOAL; We provide bi-lingual case management to all clients, administered by highly qualified and experienced case managers. Our case managers make sure that all clients are enrolled in the programs that can help them, and refer them to other non-profit programs that may be a good fit.

    3) To prevent persons from becoming homeless through financial assistance.
    HOW WE MEET THIS GOAL: We provide both rental assistance, and utilities assistance. This financial assistance of anywhere from $200 -> $2,000 can greatly reduce a families chances of becoming homeless.

    4) To work collaboratively within the community to seek long-term solutions to the homeless problem.
    HOW WE MEET THIS GOAL: We are very involved with other homeless organizations in the area. We often write joint grants together, and cross refer clients.

    5) To develop affordable housing for low to moderate income families living within our service area.
    HOW WE MEET THIS GOAL: in 2003, Almost Home built the only affordable housing in the City of Brighton. It is 120 units.

  • History:
  • Almost Home, Inc. grew out of a faith based effort to address the sheltering of homeless families in Brighton, CO. From those beginnings they formed a 501 (c) 3 organization in 1994.

    From an original staff of two (2), we have grown to the point that we have served over 13,000 families and over 42,000 individuals in our last 22 years. We are also very proud of having sheltered over 2,800 family members and have provided in excess of 46,000 nights of Shelter.

    In 2003 in an effort to address the lack of affordable housing in Adams County, Almost Home was the general partner in the Hughes Station Apartment development. In so doing, we added 120 units of low-income apartments. At last count we were housing 369 family members, the majority of which were children.

    Currently we provide approximately $350,000 in financial assistance to help pay past due utility bills to avoid shut off and or to provide one-time Rental Assistance to prevent the family from being evicted and becoming homeless.
