The IRC opened a Denver office in 2016 to provide reception and placement services to newly arrived refugees. The office is slated to resettle approximately 200-250 refugees per year and provides wraparound program services that assist refugees, asylees, Cuban and Haitian entrants, victims of trafficking, survivors of torture, asylum seekers, and other immigrant populations. Most services are available for at least five years following arrival in the U.S. The IRC in Denver’s service approach is client-centered, empowerment-focused, trauma-informed, and multigenerational.
