After School Programs
Lutheran Family Services of Rocky Mountains: Denver Metro
Refugee children face a difficult task: having to go through the challenges of cultural adjustment while at the same time dealing with the daily pressures of school. Volunteers help elementary students keep up by participating in the after school tutoring program.
Other volunteers work with high school students to help them with homework and cultural adjustment. COVID-19 means we will likely use a hybrid model of some outdoor activities and some remote activities. The volunteer opportunity is especially important in addressing the additional challenges refugee youth face during the pandemic in missing school or struggling to attend school during remote instruction.

Inspired by the compassion of Christ, Lutheran Family Services walks with the vulnerable through services that heal, strengthen and provide hope.
We believe that all people, from the newborn infant to the most elderly person, deserve to be valued in our community. Therefore, Lutheran Family Services is committed to offering love and support to the people it serves, regardless of race, religion, gender, or age, to help equip them to live full and whole lives.
Today more than 20 million refugees, asylum seekers, and internally displaced persons are living with a very uncertain future. The Lutheran Family Services (LFS) Refugee & Asylee Programs are dedicated to helping these vulnerable individuals and families rebuild their lives by equipping them to achieve self-sufficiency within their first year in the United States and fostering integration into their new communities.
