Almost Home is a place where people can come and get help with rent and utility assistance. They also provide shelter space for families with children. We try to help people become self-sufficient and manage their lives so that they can keep their homes. We provide resources to people who are looking for a place to live and try to point them in the right direction to get help if we can't.

Each year I have the honor to plan a Silent Auction event to raise funds for Almost Home, Inc. in Brighton, CO. Their staff is such a big help in the planning process and they are beyond grateful when they receive the proceeds no matter how big or small. AH has a huge impact on the Brighton community and is seen as a leader in the non-profit realm. Thanks for all you do, Almost Home!

Almost Home provides excellent services to Adams County residents. Not only does Almost Home provide rent and utilities assistance it is also provides short term emergency shelter for families who are homeless. Almost Home has dedicated staff who have been with organization since it originated. This speaks volumes about them, Almost Home, and the community. This organization far exceeds other organizations I have been involved with in my 20 plus years of non-profit experience.

Almost Home is a well-respected non-profit organization. Most of the staff members have been there for a minimum of 10+ years and are all passionate about this organization and how they deliver services. But it doesn't end there as their volunteer board members have and continue to support this organization for many years, always willing and ready to lend a helping hand. I personally saw a great number of them putting together over 300+ Thanksgiving food baskets for local families, that's just one of many examples.

Almost Home is a wonderful organization in Brighton. They help so many families and really stand out in the community. As they run the only homeless shelter in Brighton, and one of only three in Adams County, their services are definitely needed. Just this past Thanksgiving, they were able to provide 300 families with food so no one would be hungry. They really put a lot of time and effort into their work and truly care about the individuals they help.

Almost Home has helped hundreds of families in Brighton and surrounding areas find an affordable place to live that is safe, clean, warm and local. They give back to the community in whatever way they can and promote a very positive charitable force in our town. I have had the pleasure of working with the staff and can genuinely say that they truly care about what they do every day. With the help of the community and volunteers, Almost Home has managed to stay very active in the area, and we are thankful to be able to enjoy their contributions to society, both now and in the future.
