A La Source Refugee MinistryRoundup Fellowship was recently invited to partner with a non-profit organization that serves people who are refugees, new to the Denver area.  Run by Pastor Joseph Nsabimbona and his wife, Angeline Habonimana, the agency – A La Source Refugee Ministry – serves newcomers to our country.  Joseph and his wife have a personal connection to refugees.  They escaped the genocide in their home country of Burundi a number of years ago.  They know what it is like to be in a new country as a refugee.

 In our partnership, Roundup Fellowship will be allowing local refugees to come to Roundup as a training site for employment.  With the support of A La Source, individuals will be able to train to become a housekeeper or a direct care counselor.  The opportunity will provide Roundup a new source for employees.  Roundup will be a supportive job site for newcomers to the United States who are often fearful and unaccustomed to our culture.

It will be amazing to see how our staff can make an impact on the lives of new Americans in our city.  These refugees often have emotional and physical disabilities from the trauma they have experienced in their war torn homelands.  Like the individuals we support in our residential programs, refugees have the need for dignity, respect and an opportunity to give back to their community.  Roundup continues to serve “the least of these” with this newest opportunity.
