HistoryIn 1987, residents of Westwood, led in part by current SWIC Executive Director Jan Marie Belle, formed a grassroots organization dedicated to serving the people of Southwest Denver. Calling themselves the SouthWest Improvement Council (SWIC), these early pioneers cleaned up yards and alleys, painted over graffiti, and reached out to home-bound elders.
