Lakewood Alive 2020 Summer Associate
LakewoodAlive works primarily with low-income residents to bolster an evolving volunteer & community engagement program which aims to create vibrant neighborhoods through healthy, safe, and affordable housing. These programs connect residents in need of critical home repairs and housing code abatement with volunteers (skilled and unskilled) seeking to help the community. An additional focus will be connecting residents with available community programming so that not only will their environment improve but their overall quality of life will also improve. The program thereby ensures a healthy and safe home while stabilizing surrounding property values. The VISTA will play an important role in the Volunteer & Community Engagement Program by increasing LakewoodAlive’s capacity to serve more residents, more volunteers and strengthen the community’s historic housing stock.
