everyone has a place to call home

Colorado African Organization (CAO) is a nonprofit organization that exists to support Colorado’s refugee, immigrant, and asylum-seeking populations in their pursuit of integration, self-sufficiency and freedom. 



CAO provides programs to support individuals and families in becoming self-sufficient after initial resettlement or arrival.

Local Integration

Following resettlement, CAO provides opportunities for local integration by building, supporting and strengthening our refugee communities through community organizing and organizational development.

Partner Capacity

CAO builds the capacity of our community partners to understand and deliver services in a culturally relevant manner.
