Work Options for Women helps people overcome barriers to sustainable employment by building confidence while providing resources and culinary job training.


Since 1997, Work Options for Women has helped train and employ over 3,000 individuals in Denver. Work Options for Women not only prepares people to obtain entry-level employment, we work to ensure that our graduates have the culinary skills, job-readiness skills, life skills and ongoing support that they will need to retain employment and pursue a permanent career in the culinary sector.

Beginning in early 2018, we will be adding a Mobile Culinary Classroom to instruct students on an accelerated timeline who are coming out of incarceration and currently living in halfway houses around the metro area.


Are you willing to work hard to create your own better future?

Our students gain culinary skills to enable them to hold steady jobs in the food services industry. Call 720-944-3393 to learn about our 9-week culinary skills training program. Orientation sessions are held every Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Richard T Castro Denver Human Services Building.


Donate now so we can help even more people overcome the barriers to sustainable employment.

Good morning, WOW friends and family! We're just about 6 weeks away from WomenCook and we hope you're getting excited! It's time to reveal our second participating chef! She was a semifinalist for a James Beard Award for Best Chef this year and we are SO stoked to have her join the #WomenCook team. Everyone, please give it up for Chef Caroline Glover of Annette! We think she's the bee's knees and we know you will too - if you don't already.

Be sure to snag your ticket to WomenCook at and check back here for more chefs to be announced soon!
