Adopt-A-Neighbor Application for Help

Neighborhood Services
(970) 224-6046

Adopt-A-Neighbor is a volunteer program administered by the City of Fort Collins Neighborhood Services. This program provides snow removal and/or yard mowing assistance to Fort Collins residents who: are physically unable to do so themselves; cannot afford to pay for this assistance; or do not already have neighbors, family or friends who can assist them. We do our best to match volunteers with those needing assistance, but cannot guarantee providing a volunteer in every instance. We will do our best to match people, however, if a match cannot be found, applicants are still responsible for proper snow shoveling and/or yard mowing.

Please submit a completed application and signed release to Neighborhood Services. Contact the Neighborhood Services with any questions.

We will attempt to accommodate this request if possible but cannot guarantee it.
