Relief Support & Resources

Translate This Page


With the expiration of the Stay at Home order on May 8, and many businesses opening back up, a full city team continues to work around-the-clock in partnership with a number of nonprofit, philanthropic and private industry partners to serve the Denver’s needs. These efforts include lining up volunteers to support our residents who cannot leave their homes and need meal delivery, maintaining auxiliary shelters and providing hotel rooms for residents experiencing homelessness, actively supporting state and federal efforts to provide additional relief and recovery efforts to our community, and much more.

Denver residents can do their part to support this work by donating blood, volunteering their time, and donating goods and money through Mile High United Way. Learn more about how you can donate or volunteer.

People are encouraged to continue taking precautions to protect their health and the health of others. Find something that makes you laugh, exercise patience, follow the public health recommendations and support one another – even virtually.

Community Resources Map

The Denver Community Asset & Resource Mapping Application (CARMA) is a web-based tool that provides up-to-date information about community resources available to Denver residents.

CARMA, developed by Denver’s Public Safety Department, in partnership with Mile High United Way’s 2-1-1 database, includes information on urgent care facilities, mental health facilities, food resources, substance abuse facilities, hospitals and city-owned resources (libraries, rec centers, police and fire departments).

The program is searchable by location and by type of service needed.



Colorado’s call line for general questions about COVID-19 provides answers in many languages including English, Spanish (Español), Mandarin (普通话) and more.

 If you need medical attention, contact a health care provider.



The city is gradually moving from an emergency response phase into one of relief and recovery. As of Wednesday, May 6, 2020, face coverings are mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government of health care services, and waiting for or riding on public transportation.

On May 9, 2020, many businesses will be allowed to re-open with 50% of employees if able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face covering order and other guidelines.

Everyone is urged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. We know this is a big ask of our residents and businesses, but it is a necessary step to ensure the health and safety of our community.
