Serving an International Community in Colorado

Colorado is home to over 60,000 refugees. Since 2009, our team has worked to respond to the direct needs of this community as they navigate a completely new life.

Every family we serve has a unique story, a steadfast courage, and a resilience to survive and rebuild their lives here in the Centennial State.

Our Clients

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their country because of persecution, war or violence.

Before arriving in Colorado, our clients lived all over the world. We serve refugees from over 25 countries who come from diverse cultures and backgrounds, and bring unique skills and perspectives to our community.
