In November 2020, the City of Golden partnered with Wheat Ridge and Edgewater to provide a full time civilian navigator for our communities. The homeless navigator provides resources to those experiencing homelessness with a long term goal of permanent housing. This navigator works in conjunction with other navigators across the county.
The Community Resource Officers work directly with the homeless navigator. CRO's contact those experiencing homelessness in our community and provide immediate needs if possible. CRO's then complete referrals to the navigator to assist those who desire permanent housing solutions.
