The City of Golden’s Community Resource and Housing Navigation Program assists individuals experiencing homelessness and at-risk and elderly community members.

The Navigation program was primarily developed to serve unhoused individuals, but a need was identified to assist the greater Golden community, including providing a parking lot for individuals to car camp in a safe, supportive area.

The Navigator also partners with several community partners and local churches. They gratefully receive donations and gently used items for the Navigation Program.

You can drop off items in the Golden City Hall lobby at 911 10th St. A donation letter or receipt for your donation can also be provided at that time.
