The town of Littleton, Colorado is predominantly known as a small community in the Denver suburbs. According to 2000 Census data, the number of immigrant residents in this small town doubled at the end of last Century. For many, this growth opened the eyes of local residents about the complexities of integrating into local communities, especially for foreigners.

Believing that immigrants brought in diversity to the area, Littleton fretted about the culture clashes immigrants experienced in other parts of the country. Seeking to avoid that, the town created the Littleton Integration Initiative, to help immigrants make the transition to full members of the community.
