About Us

Our Mission

Listening first, LOR works with rural communities in the Mountain West to enhance livability and prosperity while preserving the character that makes each community unique.

Our Communities

Where We Work

Our work is place-based and driven by a community’s vision for their future. Our staff works locally and supports solutions in communities where they live. With offices across the Mountain West, our local roots help us elevate the rural voice and improve quality of life across the region. 

Today, we are working within Taos County, New Mexico, and Lander, Wyoming, and we will begin working with a community in Colorado soon.

Join Our Team

LOR is an exciting and dynamic place to work. We work hard and offer a generous benefits package that reflects the Foundation’s values.
