CU FAIR AT A GLANCE
The mission of CU FAIR is to support the resettlement of immigrants, refugees, and political asylees in their transition from dependency to full self-sufficiency.
CU FAIR originally organized in early 2016 in response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Since its humble beginning, we have grown to include the support of over 35 faith-based and community groups.
The hundreds of individuals that have committed their time and resources come from diverse backgrounds, country-of-origin, race, religions, ethnicity, and professional and social status to drive the mission of CU FAIR.
CU FAIR currently works with immigrants, refugees & political asylees from Afghanistan, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Central America, and more. We support our new friends and neighbors in finding housing and jobs, securing medical care and available benefits, identifying optimal English-as-a-Second-Language training, financial management, budgeting and with social and cultural integration.
