ABOUT ONE VILLAGE ONE FAMILY

OVOF is one of a small number of rapid rehousing programs in Fort Collins. It was modeled after a similar program in Denver, One Congregation One Family, that was launched out of then-Mayor John Hickenlooper’s office in 2016. Statewide, the program’s offshoots have helped more than 1,000 families escape homelessness.
