Resources with the Patient in Mind

DAWN Resource Guide

The Community Leaders of DAWN (CLD) developed a Resource Guide to help community members with information about some of the resources and organizations offered in Denver and Aurora. This guide only has a few of the many organizations and resources available.

At DAWN, part of our services involves connecting patients to housing, food, employment, insurance, and many other resources and services in the community. For a more comprehensive list of resources please call 211 or visit

If you need help getting connected to a specific organization or need to work on a referral, you will talk to one of our Care Coordinators during your next appointment at DAWN. We encourage you to review the many sections below.
