CommunityWorks was founded in 1995 with the mission of empowering people through meaningful employment opportunities.

A year ago, my name was referred to ColoradoSpringsWorks. I started as a part time program assistant. I jumped in with both feet because I believe passionately in what we do. As a retired teacher, I felt particularly skilled in bringing the joy to our Colorado Spring location. I answered phones, arranged events, and handled a small caseload. We do whatever it takes to remove barriers for historically underrepresented groups of people. People who have experienced incarceration, veterans, people experiencing homelessness, LBGTQ community members, and 55+ community members. In October, my efforts were acknowledged, and I became the first State Director of CommunityWorks! I am extremely excited to see what this position will allow me to do for the people who come to us in need of help.
