Building Beloved Community Together
There are no other hands or hearts to do the work of justice. It’s up to us. Core to our faith and congregation is being involved in making the world more just. Partnering with other organizations in Northern Colorado we aim to build long-term, sustainable relationships in which we struggle together unleash courageous love.
Serving Our Neighbors
Mobile Food Bank Site
Twice a month we host a mobile food pantry in partnership with the Food Bank of Larimer County that distributes groceries donated from local grocery stores and food stores to those in need. Volunteers of all ages join together to help address food insecurity in Fort Collins.

Faith Family Hospitality
Faith Family Hospitality (FFH) is an interfaith ministry to families experiencing homelessness in northern Colorado. Each week during the year different congregations provide overnight shelter, meals, and hospitality to an average of 14 children and adults. Foothills is a founding member of this collaboration and hosts four times a year.
One Village One Family
In partnership with Homeward Alliance, Foothills members form “villages” that accompany families experiencing homelessness into stable and secure housing. Our villages each support a family for at least six months, offering assistance in budgeting, accessing community resources, and moral support – often their greatest need.
Northern Colorado Emergency Immigration Fund
A fund of the Interfaith Solidarity and Accompaniment Coalition (ISAAC), managed by Foothills Unitarian Church. Funds are distributed to those who are facing a crisis as a direct result of current immigration policies and practices.
Foothills Unitarian volunteers have prepared and served the 4th Sunday noon meal at Catholic Charities Mission (460 Linden Center Drive) for many years. It’s a great way to support an important service in our community — and cooking expertise is not required!
Join our group of experienced volunteers on a regular or one-time basis. The 9:00am-11:00am shift prepares the meal planned by the Mission staff. The 11:15am-1:15pm crew serves the meal to approximately 100 people and assists with some clean-up.
Instructions for the day will be provided when you arrive. Park in the Mission lot and follow the path on the west side of the building to the kitchen. Wear closed toe shoes and comfortable clothes. If you have questions, please email Susan MacQuiddy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Join this group.
Advocating for Social Change
Foothills is a Sanctuary congregation committed to being a safe haven for those threatened by deportation and to be in solidarity with our immigrant neighbours.
From an organic garden on our campus to helping construct a solar farm, we support many environmental causes. The Climate Justice group hosts panels, discussions, workshops, and other events throughout the year. Foothills is increasingly integrating climate action into the entire fabric of the church.
Peace and Justice in the Middle East
Established in 2010 to “…affirm the equality, dignity, freedom, and security of all people involved [in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict]” our UUs for Justice in the Middle East educates and advocates for an end to the conflict in the middle east.
Share the Plate
Since 2014 Foothills has given over $100,000 to Community Partners
Each Sunday we collect an offering that we share equally with a partner that shares our mission of unleashing courageous love. We do this because investing in the transformation of Northern Colorado is not optional in our faith, but essential. Our Foothills community generously supports our partners and financially supports our entire operation.
