Call 970-243-9839, ext. 1 and leave a message for a SHIP volunteer. This is the best way to reach SHIP and receive a call back. Please do not choose any of the other number options, as this will delay the delivery of your message.

Alternatively, walk-ins are welcome on Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
SHIP volunteers return messages as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee immediate service.
Messages are addressed in the order received and are returned within 5 to 7 business days.
Between November and February, return calls may take longer.
