WHAT IS CHAMP?
Colorado Homeless Assistance with Medicine, originally founded at CU Boulder, is growing at Colorado State University. We are a group of students with a background in patient navigation of medical resources. We plan to focus our efforts on working with local shelter and free clinics to help determine the most pressing needs of Fort Collin's homeless population. Our overall goals are to assist people in applying for Medicaid/Medicare, then find primary care providers that accept their insurance and schedule appointments. We also aim to educate the homeless on free clinics, food banks, crisis centers, and other resources available in Fort Collins. We will meet on Thursdays from 6-7 twice a month and we will also hold fundraiser's to help support the homeless, as well as volunteer opportunities.
