Since we are a smaller community, the churches in Golden work together to pool our resources at specific locations like the Golden Rescue Fund (Golden Police Station), Golden Backpack Program, and Christian Action Guild. Individual parishes often have small bags of snacks and can help you with vouchers or locating the nearest resource center where you can receive further assistance (as available). If you are Golden resident (80401 or 80403) in need of assistance, please see the resources below. If you are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, please see the transitional housing section below for organizations that may be able to help you. Golden unfortunately does not have any local shelter facilities currently so we have listed some of the closest shelters located in Denver. If you are not a Golden resident but are traveling through Golden and have an urgent need, please contact the Golden Rescue Fund to see if they can assist you (referral may be needed). For more Denver Metro resources, please visit the Mother Cabrini Shrine Resource Directory here.


The organizations who provide these resources may have specific requirements. Please contact them directly for more details.
