DENVER —

The Denver Department of Public Safety (DOS) announced Tuesday the release of the Denver Community Asset & Resource Mapping Application (CARMA). 

CARMA is an online tool that provides searchable information about free and discounted community resources available to Denver residents. The tool was launched in a partnership with Mile High United Way and Denver Human Services.

Users of the web-based tool can search for nearby resources, such as urgent care facilities, mental health providers and food resources, according to DOS. The program is searchable by location and by type of service needed.

The map also helps members of the Department of Public Safety, Denver Police and Denver Human Services assist community members by connecting them to nearby services, according to DOS.  

The DOS works with city agencies to ensure Denver is safe. 

Mile High United Way is a nonprofit social services organization with a 211 call center that offers a statewide resource that helps people navigate food resources, shelter, rent assistance, utility assistance and more.
