Getting Involved in Arvada

Neighbors Connected

Formerly known as the Neighborhood Engagement Program, the newly restructured program is called Neighbors Connected: Neighborhood Strong. Neighbors Connected was originally a Police Department (PD) program to promote public safety through crime prevention education and strong neighborhood relationships. With the PD's encouragement, we are growing the program to be the City’s umbrella neighborhood engagement platform by connecting our residents to resources and opportunities to develop sustainable neighborhood groups that help neighbors to strengthen their own communities.

Homeless in Arvada

Homelessness is on the rise in Arvada and throughout Colorado. In our community, homelessness is increasingly affecting families with children, the under-employed, veterans and individuals with mental health or substance-abuse issues. The City is collaborating with other organizations and agencies to help find solutions to homelessness.

Senior Resources


A wide range of services and programs are made available throughout the City of Arvada and the Denver Metropolitan area to assist senior citizens.

These services are provided by governmental agencies and private entities outside of government.

The list of resources below is not exhaustive or complete for all services or programs that may be available but should provide you with a variety of possible sources for information and assistance.

Affordable/Attainable Housing

The availability of affordable housing offers many community benefits, including reduced commute time and stress, and improved neighborhood stability. Unfortunately, many Colorado residents spend more than 30% of their income on housing, and finding attainable housing has become a serious challenge. 

The City of Arvada is taking a close look at attainable/affordable, housing in our communities.
