Bienvenido – Welcome – ברוך הבא
The West Colfax Association of Neighbors (WeCAN) welcomes you to the West Colfax neighborhood! Founded in 2009, WeCAN is Denver’s Registered Neighborhood Organization (RNO) serving the West Colfax neighborhood in the City and County of Denver.
West Colfax is bordered by Sheridan Boulevard on the west, Federal Boulevard on the east, 17th & 19th Avenue and on the north, and the Lakewood Gulch on the south. West Colfax is one of the most diverse and culturally unique neighborhoods in Denver. Over 100 years ago, West Colfax developed as the residential and business center for the Jewish Community, and several large Victorian homes were built along Stuart St. West Colfax Avenue became a part of US Highway 40 in the 1940s, a 26 mile stretch through Denver where hotels, restaurants, and clubs were built; reminders still seen today.
WeCAN’s mission is Bringing Neighbors Together to Build Community. WeCAN hosts a variety of social events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year to bring neighbors together. WeCAN strives to connect neighbors to one another, events, and news in West Colfax. Sign-up to receive our newsletter, follow us on social media or attend one of our events.
