Project Worthmore was founded in 2011 by Frank and Carolyn Anello as a response to the acute need for assistance of the refugee families in their community. From our start offering makeshift English classes in living rooms, we now offer six comprehensive programs to thousands of refugee clients. Around half of our staff are from the refugee community, helping us to better listen, empower and support those who have come here to rebuild their lives. Strategically located off of east Colfax, Project Worthmore is in the heart of the refugee community and therefore easily accessed by our clients. Our team and impact continue to grow as we play a role in supporting people during the worst refugee crisis since World War II.
