I had some recent transplants move back to Colorado and we found them a wonderful home! After closing, these folks wanted to donate to a nonprofit that benefits refugees. After researching some organizations, they selected Project Worthmore located in Aurora.
Project Worthmore provides programs that foster community, self-sufficiency and increase quality of life among Denver-area refugees.
PW accomplishes this endeavor through a multitude of avenues. They provide:
- English (ESL) classes at no cost to refugees
- A dental clinic for the refugees who cannot afford dental care.
- Fresh and healthy produce for families to attain bi-weekly
- A family partnership program to help orient refugee families to Denver
I was particularly inspired by the family partnership program, as this is not just a way to help the refugee families, but to become acquainted with another culture and step out of our comfort zone. I especially think that families with children could receive great benefit by participating in this program. What a wonderful way to expose your children to culture, while helping another family in need!
Here is a video about Project Worthmore’s Family Partnership Program:
There are many ways you can become involved with Project Worthmore. You can donate or volunteer. You can follow them on Facebook or Twitter. AND you can attend their upcoming event: Our Neighbors, Ourselves, which is an art exhibit that will take place at Stanley Marketplace on September 24, 2016.
As always, you can donate to Project Worthmore when you buy or sell a home through Conscious Real Estate – we always contribute 10% of our commissions to the nonprofit of our client’s choice! To learn more about this, call Allison Parks at 303-908-9873 or email [email protected].
