Volunteer

Become a Hosting Host

While newly arriving immigrant families work to get established in Colorado, they often need a soft spot to land until they can get on their own feet and secure their own place. We are looking for families or individuals willing to host them in their home, or a home they may own. Both short term and mid-term hosts are needed.
