This holiday season, Localworks thanks you and the Wheat Ridge community for your support. Through your support, Localworks has been able to deliver programs that connect and engage residents, beautify our community, and support and promote our local Wheat Ridge businesses.
However, we are not alone in our efforts to make Wheat Ridge a great place to live, work and play. There are many nonprofits here in our community that provide services to support our community. During this holiday season, we ask that you think of these nonprofits and how you can support the important work they do in our community.
Seniors’ Resource Center
Seniors’ Resource Center is dedicated to enhancing the independence, dignity and quality of life for seniors. Since 1978, Seniors’ Resource Center has been providing an array of services that enable older adults to thrive and remain independent in their homes. Their services include in-home care and adult daytime programs that provide life-enriching activities and support both older adults and their caregivers. Today, Seniors’ Resource Center provides services, resources and advocacy to over 24,500 people a year. You can support Seniors’ Resource Center at: www.srcaging.org
Family Tree is a nonprofit human services agency that provides innovative, life-changing services designed to end child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness. Since 1976, they have helped individuals, families and the community see, respond to, and overcome the challenges of child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness. You can support Family Tree at: www.thefamilytree.org
Community Table is a Colorado nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation formed in 1982 by five church congregations to serve the needy and vulnerable in our community. From the beginning, Community Table has worked with city government, churches, schools, civic organizations, businesses and private citizens to ensure that the residents of northern Jefferson County have a place to go for emergency food. You can support Community Table at: www.cotable.org
Our community connections are what make Wheat Ridge such a special place. The Localworks team looks forward to connecting with you and your family. You can join us on Tuesdays at our standing Makerspace meetup or jump on our virtual coffee break on Wednesdays to catch up with friends. As we head into spring and summer, plan on joining us at a Live Local event and watch for our re-imaged Ridgefest in early summer.
