Homeward Alliance was previously known as “Homeless Gear,” a Colorado-based non-profit that was founded in 2008. After a decade of growth (merging with other organizations, launching housing-driven initiatives, assuming management of the Murphy Center and more), Homeless Gear changed its name to Homeward Alliance.

Homeward Alliance operates a continuum of programs and initiatives, ranging from critical survival gear, to employment services, to homelessness prevention. We are not only an alliance of services, but also an alliance of volunteers, donors, agency partners and other community stakeholders. We envision a community in which homelessness is rare, short-lived and non-recurring.
Housing First Initiative
Collects and reports data and provides intensive case management to transition participants from homelessness to housing.
The Murphy Center (MC), located at 242 Conifer Street in Fort Collins Colorado, provides direct support for any person who walks through the door. To support individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in Larimer County, 20 independent agencies offering an array of 40 programs and services collaborate to address needs that are identified during the intake conversation. The Murphy Center is open 7 days a week, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm for limited outdoor services due to COVID-19 and from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm for scheduled appointments, Monday through Friday.
