The resource center is located at 3836 York Street in Denver. The center will work with the homeless veterans to help with permanent housing, health and mental health care, career development and access to VA and non-VA benefits.

“If you’re really going to help veterans and you’re really going to end homelessness, it’s a whole community coming together and working together. So, we’re not the end-all of homeless services for veterans, but we’re really proud to be part of the community that provides such great resources,” said Michelle Lapidow, Deputy Chief of VA Homeless Programs.
