We are the only program in the Yampa Valley that provides assistance to non-English speaking community members in the areas of medical, employment, housing, legal and other basic needs decreasing the workload of other human service agencies in the area. In 2016, we received Recognition from the U.S Department of Justice to provide limited immigration services. We enhance human service agencies’ capacity to serve their immigrant constituency through language support and cultural training. We also extend bilingual troubleshooting, advocacy, mediation, education and case management services to immigrant constituents ranging from newborns to adults who have not attained proficiency in English.
