Support Resettled Refugees

by Maggie Williams December 01, 2015

On this global day of giving back, we've compiled a list of incredible organizations that need your support. At Knotty Tie Co, we are dedicated to working with, supporting, and learning more about organizations that address the needs of resettled refugees in the Denver area and across the country. The diverse set of groups below are all striving toward the same goal: empowering resettled refugees to improve their quality of life here in America.

African Community Center

African Community Center, which helps refugees rebuild safe, sustainable lives here in Denver, has partnered with Knotty Tie Co. to provide employment to skilled resettled refugees. ACC's work includes helping newcomers navigate US systems and culture, recover from past trauma, gain personal independence and economic self-sufficiency, and become able, productive, and contributing members of society.

Donate to this incredible local organization here.

We Made This

Another amazing Knotty Tie Co partner, We Made This empowers refugee women in the Metro Denver Area through sewing, production, and entrepreneurial skills training. Refugee women often face difficulties in finding meaningful employment due to cultural and language barriers, limited formal training, post-traumatic stress. Many of our employees have undergone We Made This' sewing training program, helping them tap into their courage and creativity and improve their quality of life here in Denver.

Help We Made This train and empower more refugee women by donating here.

Refuge Coffee Co

Like Denver and its neighboring towns, Clarkston, GA has a large and growing refugee population. Refugee Coffee Co, a coffee truck in Clarkston, employs and trains resettled refugees. In their words, "We dream of a more vibrant Clarkston, one where refugees have opportunities to thrive. Where they [go] from survival in their first days here to building a life. Where people from greater Atlanta and beyond discover the multi-textured beauty of a global culture right here in our own backyard."

Refuge has a PureCharity.org campaign underway right now, and its ending soon! Donate here to help them employ and empower more refugees.

Project Worthmore

Forming in 2011 as a makeshift response to unmet needs of refugees in Denver, Project Worthmore has grown into an organized effort to empower Denver's refugee population. Through teaching use of public transportation, registering children for school, setting up apartments for newly arrived families, and coordinating cultural mentorship teams, Project Worthmore helps restore worth to refugees resettled in the Denver Metro Area.

Donate to Project Worthmore here.
