Our Vision

As you will see below, Localworks has a rich history in our community. Localworks was founded on the roots of economic development to in turn create a prospering community, and to this day, that is still what we are here to do. As you get familiar with our list of programs, including but not limited to live local, building up business and civic engagement, each program points back to our mission- making this a more vibrant and sustainable place to live and work.

Founded by City officials and staff in 2005, our non-profit organization has become a force for change, repositioning Wheat Ridge as a vibrant, respected and sought after community. As a 501c3 nonprofit, your support continues to make this work possible. Every dollar counts – learn more about donating today. We’ve worked hard to develop and grow the City while retaining a uniquely rich tradition of smalltown-life with rural accents just at the edge of Denver.
