The mission of Broomfield FISH is to meet our neighbors’ basic human needs and provide them with hope and tools to rise out of poverty. FISH is a nonprofit organization that provides food, emergency financial assistance, and one-on-one mentoring support to Broomfield residents in need.
Broomfield FISH (Fellowship In Serving Humanity) has been a vital community resource serving economically disadvantaged residents for more than 57 years. Originally founded in 1963 by a group of women from six local churches, FISH recognized that many community members were going hungry and began collecting and distributing food to those in need. In 2001, the organization incorporated and in 2002 filed for 501©3 status. FISH began as a food pantry, but has since expanded services to include an array of resources and programs designed to help people become more self-sufficient. In 2018, FISH became the only Family Resource Center (FRC) in Broomfield County. After joining the Colorado Family Resource Center Association, we began focusing on whole-family, two-generational health and well-being. Currently, FISH serves residents in Broomfield County living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level, offering food, emergency financial assistance, referral services to more than 30 partner organizations, and strengths-based, whole family development pathways.
FISH provides a variety of family support services. Generally, we serve residents of Broomfield County who earn an annual income that is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines. If you are interested in learning more or want to access services, please call 303-465-1600.
FISH works closely with the CO Family Resource Center Association, six local grocery stores, Community Food Share, We Don’t Waste, and Conscious Alliance to prevent hunger with our cost-free, self-shop marketplace. We offer nutritious food while focusing on maintaining dignity and respect for residents. We also reduce waste.
Transportation assistance helps families sustain their livelihoods with gas cards, bus passes, or car repairs.
Rent and Utility Assistance
FISH helps residents avoid eviction and/or utility shut-off so they have safe, warm shelter.
Family Resource Center Services
