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 Partnerships and the Office of Immigrant & Refugee Affairs 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.
The Denver Immigrant Community and Neighborhood Assessment provides an introduction to Denver's diverse international communities and targeted profiles of the eight neighborhoods with the highest percentage of immigrants:
Immigrant & Refugee Integration
Athmar Park, Barnum, East Colfax, Elyria Swansea, Mar Lee, Montbello, Ruby Hill, Westwood
Each neighborhood profile provides a quick snapshot of other important indicators of the residents in that neighborhood including the languages spoken, countries of origin and neighborhood assets - schools, community agencies and nonprofits and places of worship.
The recent Trump Administration Executive Orders regarding immigration, deportation and travel have caused sincere confusion and concern in our communities. In the coming days and weeks, the Hancock Administration will be gearing up legal protections and supportive services and working with other providers to ensure immigrant and refugee communities have the resources they need and know what their rights are. That starts with empowering people with information and resources.
Denver has a history of welcoming immigrants and refugees and will continue to act as a welcoming city and an ally for all new arrivals.
