About the Colorado Refugee Services Program
Welcome to the Colorado Refugee Services Program
Colorado has a long history of leadership and support for refugee resettlement. Whether you are a refugee, an interested community member looking for a way to connect, or an employer looking to elevate your workforce, we hope to provide you with the resources that you need.
Colorado Refugee Services Program (CRSP) is a program of the Colorado Department of Human Services and is responsible for the statewide coordination of refugee resettlement under the authority of the Refugee Act of 1980. Its goal is to ensure effective resettlement of refugee and refugee eligible populations and to promote refugee self-sufficiency and long-term integration. CRSP is 100% federally funded, through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Colorado Works Program.
CRSP is committed to a holistic approach to refugee resettlement. CRSP does not offer any direct services but instead works through a constellation of contracts and partners to achieve our goals. Our services and programs support refugees and the larger receiving community working together to build the social capital necessary to both sustain a welcoming environment for refugees as well as a return on investment for the mainstream.
