U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) spent some time in Littleton on Jan. 29 to visit Bemis Library, in particular the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center and the new Aging Well Resource Center.

Coffman visited with students in the beginning English class, conversing with some of them in Spanish. He complimented Mariela Cahow and Kay Wilmesher, the programs' supervisors, on their work, and Littleton Mayor Phil Cernanec filled him in on the naturalization ceremonies hosted by the center each year.

Coffman represents the 6 Congressional District, which includes Littleton, Centennial, Highlands Ranch and Aurora, among other areas.

The Littleton Immigrant Resources Center offers English classes, help navigating the path to citizenship, one-on-one mentoring by volunteers, and other resources. Attorneys can charge upward of $500 an hour for the same services LIRC offers on a sliding scale.

The Aging Well Resource Center opened last October. It helps seniors find resources in the areas like food assistance, health and medical, insurance, transportation, family caregiving, employment, VA benefits, education, utilities and volunteering. It hosts a free activity once a month with refreshments, games and prizes.
