partner capacity

We’re committed to making sure that refugee and immigrant communities have a strong network of support in place after their arrival. At CAO we make a commitment to developing authentic and supportive partnerships with other organizations and systems. 

CAO plays a key role in the delivery of services for our refugee and asylum-seeking populations after initial resettlement. We engage and build the capacity of our partners to understand and deliver services in a culturally relevant manner.  CAO provides fee-based, culturally-relevant education through training and presentations.

In 2015, our Community Navigators helped Denver Public Schools achieve a 17% increase in refugee languages attending Training and Leadership Development trainings and events.

Our Community Navigator team worked with Denver Public Schools to achieve a 45% increase in refugee languages attending the Superintendent Parent Forums.

Through staff and teacher surveys, 100 % of participants reportedan increase in parent understanding of the school system as a result of the community navigators' work.
