Adopt A Neighbor Request Form - COVID-19 Response

Get Help from a Neighbor Volunteer - COVID-19 Response

Fill out this form to request help from a neighbor volunteer through this uniquely challenging time. We are looking for neighbors in Fort Collins and the surrounding Growth Management Area who are vulnerable to COVID-19 and need assistance with daily tasks.  You will be paired with a volunteer in your community!  Tasks may include but are not limited to grocery shopping and delivery, basic errands, driveway shoveling, pet care and more. You will:  

  • Be connected with a neighbor who wants to help and is background checked and trained by the City of Fort Collins on COVID-19 safety.  

  • Develop a list of tasks that would help you be more comfortable to be completed by the volunteer neighbor. 

  • Assign volunteer neighbor errands or tasks to help you. 

Important Notes:
Volunteers are not permitted inside your home. All tasks must take place outside.
We will attempt to accommodate every request if possible but cannot guarantee it.

The City of Fort Collins provides a Restorative Justice program to youth ages 14-21 who are required to complete a set number of volunteer hours via court mandate. The restorative justice program brings people together to identify the harm caused by a criminal incident and to find ways to repair that harm.    

In some cases we will pair two volunteers to work together for one resident in need. This may include a volunteer from the restorative justice program. If you are interested in this option please check this box.
