Solving homelessness, poverty and substance abuse may not be what you think of when you think of a library. See how Denver is redefining the role of its public library to better serve its community. Watch and share this inspiring story.
Denver Public Library’s "Peer Navigators" provide referrals to resources such as housing, mental health and/or substance abuse services. They also assist with benefit acquisition for library customers experiencing poverty and homelessness. This program is funded by a $41,000 grant from the Justice Assistance Grant through the U.S. Department of Justice and is administered locally by Denver Human Services and the Colorado Mental Wellness Network.
