Lakewood Alive Summer Associate
LakewoodAlive works primarily with low-income residents to bolster an evolving volunteer program which aims to create vibrant neighborhoods through healthy, safe, and affordable housing. The Housing Outreach Volunteer Program connects residents in need of critical home repairs and housing code abatement with volunteers (skilled and unskilled) seeking to help the community. The program thereby ensures a healthy and safe home while stabilizing surrounding property values. The VISTA will play an important role in the Volunteer Program by increasing LakewoodAlive’s capacity to serve more residents, more volunteers and strengthen the community’s historic housing stock.
