LakewoodAlive is a community-centered nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster and sustain vibrant and welcoming neighborhoods. Our vision is to ensure Lakewood is a welcoming community that thrives on engaged residents, desirable housing and an entrepreneurial spirit that connect in strong, diverse neighborhoods to maximize quality of life.

Project Overview

We have received a grant to update our website both generally, and with the specific goal of assisting in the intake of residents and small businesses for a variety of support programming. The programming includes submission of standard forms and financial information.

Our organization and website serve a variety of audiences, from attendees of a costumed dog parade to residents on the verge of losing their home and in desperate need of assistance. Our team is small, and each employee wears a variety of hats so ease of use, dependability and support are key elements to success.

The organization administers a city-wide commercial development program with large scale events, small business associations, design improvements and promotes historic preservation efforts. The organization also offers a city-wide Housing Outreach Program that works with residents to sustain our historic housing stock while connecting residents to financial and educational resources coupled with volunteer projects, ensuring healthy and safe housing for all.
