Mission Statement

Local Mission: To promote healthy, productive, and self-sufficient living for African immigrant/refugee older adult and elderly populations in the greater Metro Denver area. Our Vision: To act as advocates by promoting an environment of dignity and respect for what has become a marginalized population. Mission International To BUILD, LOVE and RESTORE hope; preserve historic, religious, and traditional values, legacy and wisdom acquired through life experience; advocate for the dignity, safety and respect of the homeless elderly in Africa- Ethiopia.


Our focus is to maintain virtuous quality of life of elderly women and men by providing the basic necessities, such as food, shelter, and medical care, while nurturing the body, mind, and soul.

Our vision is twofold:

To serve as a bridge to create a
forum for sharing culturally appropriate best practices to meet the needs of the community, the majority of which are older adult and elderly women.

To act as advocates by promoting
an environment of respect and dignity for what has become marginalized

Our goal is to promote collaboration with service providers that are already engaged in serving the target group, tapping into our years of experience in working with the refugee and immigrant populations. We have strong ties with faith-based, community and government organizations that will
allow us to tailor our services to close the gap.
