March Village Invest: Work Options


Work Options is a local Denver non-profit that focuses its efforts on individuals who have struggled with finding or maintaining long-term employment. They seek to help these individuals who are navigating the justice system, experiencing housing loss or insecurity, or just need additional workplace skills and experience. Work Options helps by offering culinary skills training, individualized support services, life skill classes and job search support.

Their mission: To help people overcome barriers to sustainable employment by building confidence while providing resources and culinary job training

History: When Work Options was started 25 years ago in 1997, it was called Work Options for Women. In May of 2021 they formally changed the name to Work Options, to more accurately reflect their commitment to providing job training for all individuals, regardless of gender. Historically, Work Options has recruited and provided job training for individuals with minimal work experience or who are under-skilled. For many years, a majority of the students in their program were transitioning off of public assistance to the workplace. In 2018, they added an additional target population- individuals preparing to re-enter the community following incarceration.

Please join us in their mission this month by donating below!
