If we want, a network to coordinate mutual aid needs, resources, and actions.

Immigrant and refugee communities have been hit hard by the economic impact of the pandemic. Nearly one in 10 Colorado residents is an immigrant, and a similar share of residents are native-born U.S. citizens who have at least one immigrant parent. Immigrants comprise nearly 14% of all business owners in the state’s densely populated integral part of Colorado’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.

Multicultural Mosaic Foundation has started a COVID-19 Immigrant and Refugee Community Relief Fund to address the immediate needs of the most vulnerable immigrants and refugees within Denver metro area impacted by COVID-19.

Mosaic has reserved $10,000 from its funds for this relief fund. In addition,Mosaic is working on raising funds to supplement the fund.

We will get through this crisis by supporting each other. 

If you would like to participate, please donate by using one of the methods below:

  • Send a check to Multicultural Mosaic Foundation at

The priority with this project is emergency relief and support for basic needs. Mosaic will provide immediate financial assistance to refugee and immigrant individuals (up to $500) and families (up to $1500) severely impacted by COVID-19. The amount of financial assistance provided will be dependent on the extent of the impact as well as our target population’s most urgent needs.

This group is a place for people in the Aurora, CO area to give and receive volunteer, person-to-person assistance for logistical issues connected to COVID-19. With kids out of school, people with health issues are practicing social distancing and others are missing work and losing business. Let's think about what we can offer each other.
Remember, everyone needs something sometime and everyone has something to give. We're all in this together. Feel free to both ask for and offer things.

Is a group you're involved with doing something helpful? Awesome. Post it. Did you think of something I didn't? Of course you did, you clever thing! Share here.

Be sure that what you're offering is commensurate with a level of risk you're comfortable with. Remember, you want to be as careful as the most vulnerable person you see regularly.
If you are offering services for a fee which you feel would be helpful, feel free to post them on this Facebook page. Please don't use the volunteer form for that. We want to be clear about what's free and what isn't.

Also, be sure to fact check health info before you post it here.

We're all going to be spending a lot more time from home, so, Boulderites, let's take lemons and make a tasty, organic, gluten free, small batch, lemonade!

This group is for:

Doing Good
+ Connecting to those in need
+ Volunteering opportunities
+ Rallying donations

Staying Happy from Home
+ Virtual happy hours (and hugs)
+ Where to find needed supplies
+ Entertainment ideas: books, streaming, podcasts, gardening
+ Asking for, and giving, advice
+ Let's haz jokes

Other ideas welcome. See the topic areas where you can post.

Let's keep it apolitical, non commercial, and positive. We got this Boulder!

This page is for Denver folks to offer to help our Denver neighbors in times of need. Please do not post personal information, if you identify someone who can help send your information via PM. These services must all be volunteer, any services involving compensation will be deleted by admin. Some suggested services to offer;  getting groceries, shoveling sidewalks in the event of snow, picking up packages, or anything else you can think of that someone who is quarantined might need, or if you can offer a service that is needed because businesses are closed. As always, be safe to not expose yourself in the process.
