Sonia Falcón, MSW is a Community Resource Specialist with the Denver Public Library. She works to connect library customers to resources and supportive services related to emergency shelter, mental health, housing, food, education, employment, legal services, and more at 11 branch locations throughout the east side of Denver. Her work also involves partnering with local agencies and service providers, developing and facilitating trainings for library colleagues, and advocating for social change and improved supports on behalf of marginalized populations in Denver. Sonia received her Master’s in Social Work from the University of Washington and spent more than a dozen years working with youth, students, and families in community mental health, foster care, and higher education settings in Seattle, WA. In 2018 she had the opportunity to move to Denver, and she has since been overjoyed to find herself working for the public library. Her hometown library in New Mexico was often a place of refuge and restoration while growing up, and she feels privileged to partner with library staff in creating a welcoming and resilient community for all at the Denver Public Library.
