Family Refugee Services (FRS)
In partnership with Lutheran Family Services, FRS helps refugee families with limited relational and material support adjust to life in the United States. In order for refugees to qualify for eight months of housing assistance, FRS interns at Denver Rescue Mission recruit mentor teams who provide clients with basic needs, community orientation, employment and financial skills, and social and emotional support. Bilingual assistance is also provided if necessary. FRS works with refugees from all over the world, including Somalia, Sudan, Liberia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and Iraq.
