Refugees & Immigrants


We understand the hardships associated with relocating to a new country.  That is why we strive to help you make a successful transition to self-sufficiency in America.

Citizenship
We help refugees attain the rights and privileges that accompany citizenship through formalized education and specialized support.

Counseling
To ease the stress of a difficult transition, we offer school-based and individual counseling to refugees and immigrants who are adjusting to life in a foreign country.

We provide a variety of support services to older adults who are resettling in the Denver area such as counseling, access to our Weinberg Food Pantry, and assistance navigating the health care system.
