It Takes a Library
From Llewellyn Cornelius on November 9th, 2019
Description: Dr. Cornelius meets with Ms. Elissa Hardy, LCSW, the Community Resource Manager and two peer navigators as they discuss an innovative approach for using the Denver Libraries and both a location for social service delivery and as a launch pad for community engagement activities. Their model is centered on the social workers and peer navigators building relationships with customers who are experiencing life challenges, while simultaneously assisting them in accessing resources to help improve their quality of life.
