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.


For Refugees - We're Here For You

If you are a refugee who arrived in the United States within the past five years, your resettlement agency is still a source of support and services. Contact your resettlement agency for help with employment, TANF, food stamps, immigration, and other public programs.

If you did not arrive in Colorado initially or have recently received asylee status, and do not have a local resettlement agency, please contact Susan at 303-863-8214.

You can also connect with community navigators who can support you in finding the right services and support. The Colorado African Organization has community navigators who may be able to assist you.

But you may find that you need additional support and here are some helpful links that you can use.


211 Help Centers 

United Way’s 211 help centers have a useful database of services in the community. This is a great place to start in getting the right services and referrals.
