About the Program

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.
