Ecumenical Refugee and Immigration Services (ERIS) helps to resettle refugees and asylees who are legally in Colorado (by Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries), by providing them assistance with educational needs, family and social services, medical attention, employment, and cultural orientation.
The main goal of ERS is to help refugees become self-sufficient and independent as quickly as possible. ERS has been working with refugees in this manner since 1979, resettling about 600 new refugees annually.
