Background Statement

In 2017, the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado began as a combined operation between Right to Read of Weld County and the Global Refugee Center. Becoming one, larger organization made sense for a variety of reasons, but it was the opportunity to provide further services to our clients that made the decision easy. Rather than providing English language training to some clients and Community Navigation services to others, we knew that we could be reaching everyone by making our services into one efficient, effective process.

Since merging, we have scaled our operations to be more efficient and more effective. Daily, we are helping immigrants & refugees within our community have a resource hub that enables greater self-sufficiency, and we are routinely adapting our services to remain relevant, tangible, and useful to clients in need. During COVID-19, we adopted our first direct cash assistance program to help families avoid eviction, get medical care, and stay informed. We are Northern Colorado's hub for immigrant resources, and we take that identity seriously.
