Introducing a New Partnership: Home in Golden: Engage. Empathize. Empower.
Are you looking for ways to connect and engage with your neighbors in Golden? Do you want to help your neighbors but are not sure where to begin?
Golden United has recently partnered with Home in Golden, a grassroots initiative founded with the underlying intentions to connect more deeply with each other and with the needs of our Golden community.
Home in Golden has coordinated efforts with the city, the Golden Police Department, and local school administration focusing on two initial projects that will address the current critical needs within our community. With the rising eviction rates, sheltering limitations during the pandemic, and remote learning challenges, Home in Golden is supporting a Safe Parking program for residents sheltering in their vehicle as well as a Tutoring program for High School students.
Safe Parking Program
The Safe Parking program is designed after other successful models and will provide safe places to park overnight for homeless individuals who are currently sheltering in their vehicles lending to their well-being and productivity.
As remote learning proves to have many challenges for students causing increased rates of failing grades, Golden High School’s administration is very interested in partnering with Home in Golden to provide a free tutoring program.
