About CWEE

The Center for Work Education and Employment (CWEE) supports vulnerable workers, mostly single moms, to train for and launch careers. CWEE addresses the root causes of poverty by providing a path to long-term employment for hundreds of Denver-area families each year.

CWEE is among Denver’s leading comprehensive anti-poverty organizations and over 40 years has pioneered more effective ways to help struggling families.

Through public-private partnerships, CWEE leverages the community’s investment in public benefit programs to provide skills training and supportive services that move families from poverty to self-sufficiency.

Since our inception in 1982, CWEE has helped more than 18,000 career seekers lift their families out of poverty through employment and family support.
