IMMIGRANT & REFUGEE INTEGRATION

Immigrants and refugees form a valuable component of Denver's community and contribute to the economic, social and cultural fabric of the City.  Immigrant integration insists on an interaction between the Newcomer and the established community to encourage a sense of belonging and make steps toward each other to foster prosperity. 

The Agency for Human Rights and Community Relations and the Office of Community Support honor the positive contributions of our immigrant and refugee communities and support their integration in Denver.  Many immigrants make their way to Denver through civil war, torture, and economic or political oppression with a persistent spirit of hope and determination to establish better lives for themselves and their children.
