Village Exchange Center
Village Exchange Center is a non-profit organization formed to serve immigrants and refugees in the Aurora/Denver metro area. As a community center and multi-faith worship space it seeks to celebrate cultural and religious diversity by creating an inclusive environment where residents from all background interact, share and develop together. Through organic and collocated programs, informational services and cultural activities, the center will be a “one stop shop” supporting integration, engagement and empowerment of newly arrived residents.
The Village Exchange Center began as a concept in early 2016 when the faith community of St. Matthew Lutheran Church considered ways to be responsive to and serve its neighborhood, Aurora, and the wider community. The city of Aurora is among an increasing number of cities across the U.S. grappling with realities of integration with multiple cultures and communities of immigrants and refugees.
