Drop off at 568 E. Bridge St. Brighton, CO 80601

Contact volunteers@almosthomeonline.org to schedule a drop off, or for more information

Host a Drive

At your school, church, or with your neighborhood, collection drives are always needed!  Confirm with our Housing Services Director (Delaney Coe) to confirm what our current needs are at the shelter OR you can view our “Donation Wishlist” which is updated periodically to obtain a list of items that are generally needed.

 

Contact volunteers@almosthomeonline.org with any questions

 

Shelter Dinner Drop-Off

All clients at the shelter are responsible for purchasing and preparing their own meals.  However, financial trouble and feeling unstable can lead to stress.  An occasional warm meal would be a blessing for our clients as a way of relieving their day-to-day responsibilities for a moment.

 To schedule a meal drop-off, contact the Housing Service Director, Delaney Coe OR contact volunteers@almosthomeonline.org with any questions
