Based on our history and experiences with various ethnic communities, CAO has created a powerful methodology for organizing ethnic communities of immigrants and refugees in Colorado. We focus specifically on supporting their members' unique integration journeys after their initial resettlement process. We provide training, technical assistance and peer-to-peer networking opportunities for our refugee ethnic communities.

I fled my home in Khartoum, Sudan because I had suffered political persecution. I came to CAO in great need. CAO staff and volunteers helped me to establish my new home. They connected me with a volunteer lawyer to help me with my asylum case. After a four year struggle for protection, I can finally call America my permanent home.
