Community Resources

West Colfax Stakeholder Database

The West Colfax Stakeholder Database was created by the WeCAN organization with the help of a grant from Denver’s Office of Climate Action, Sustainability & Resiliency (CASR) to help WeCAN connect stakeholders (neighbors, non-profits, city agencies, schools, businesses and other agencies) with information, resources, and one another in the West Colfax neighborhood. 

This Database is continually being updated. Please send any additions or edits to the Database to [email protected] so we can make those updates.
