Building Partnerships and Collaborative Funding Streams: Colorado Works and Colorado Refugee Services

The Office of Refugee Resettlement hosted a Webinar entitled "Building Partnerships and Collaborative Funding Streams: Colorado Works and Colorado Refugee Services." This free Webinar provided an opportunity to hear about the collaboration between the Colorado Refugee Services Program and Colorado Works (TANF), both located within the Colorado Department of Human Services. This Webinar focused on how they collaborate to deliver TANF services to refugees, with county employees approving eligibility for TANF and paying Basic Cash Assistance and CRSP providing case management and workforce activities. They discussed their suite of targeted employment, cultural orientation, language assistance, healthcare, and legal services provided for refugee clients. Additionally, presenters discussed how they move refugees towards employment through case management, English as a Second Language training, cultural orientation and pre-employment training, employment training, health professional recertification and entrepreneurial services that are aligned with the skills of the clients.
