Community Household Donation Drive

The City of Arvada Homeless Navigation Program provides housing resources and services to individuals who are currently unhoused or at-risk of homelessness. Most individuals receiving our services live outside or in their cars prior to moving into their apartments and are lacking the basic necessities such as cleaning products, dishes, pots and pans, etc.

The City team is hosting a Community Household Donation Drive to assist these families in setting up their households with basic supplies. This donation drive will take place between August 15 and September 15 at the following locations:
