Mission Statement

The Rocky Mountain Welcome Center (RMWC) is an immigrant-led, community-based nonprofit with the mission of fostering intercultural learning, understanding, and integration among immigrants, refugees, and Colorado residents. Since 2017, RMWC has actively worked to build welcoming communities in Colorado.




Organization History

RMWC was created in 2017 to develop supportive programs for immigrants left out of or not eligible for refugee resettlement services. While those with refugee status receive services up to five years, other immigrants, especially those arriving with Asylum claims, Diversity visas or as spouses, have few resources for support or navigation.

The Rocky Mountain Welcome Center (RMWC) was originally created as a partnership organization consisting of several immigrant-led and immigrant-serving organizations working together in a shared space. RMWC worked hard to foster activities that could make a collective impact and has benefited greatly from the connections and relationships it has within many newly arrived refugee and immigrant communities. RMWC programming supports immigrants and refugees in their journeys of community integration through access to educational programs, social bridging activities and culturally appropriate direct services. As an integration-focused organization, RMWC builds social bridging and community networking opportunities into everything we do.

Although RMWC's physical space was shut down during the pandemic, RMWC continues to serve the immigrant and refugee community in the ways it has presented needs. Some programs were moved to a virtual environment, while others have been moved to housing facilities where immigrants and refugees live. RMWC was also able to pivot quickly to meet the needs of the communities it serves as needs surfaced. New programs were developed in 2020-21 to meet these needs, including Halal and vegetarian meal delivery, literacy programming and COVID-19 resourcing and information to immigrant/refugee communities.
