Project Worthmore

 

Project Worthmore Started as a makeshift response to the unmet needs of our refugee neighbors in 2009, Project Worthmore’s vision is for a world in which all people are valued, included, and empowered.

Project Worthmore

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their country because of persecution, war or violence.

An estimated 60,000 people who have fled their home countries now call Colorado home. They came to this country as refugees, and from the day they arrive, they are challenged to forge a new life, pay rent within the first few months of arrival, adapt to a new culture, learn English, and navigate complex networks of public services and administration. The very first thing a refugee owns upon entering the USA is debt: They all must reimburse the cost of their plane tickets, a substantial financial burden, especially for large families.

  • Community-run Food Access Programs
  • Organic Urban Farm
