Lakewood Linked

When neighbors start talking, good things happen!
Our Lakewood community becomes stronger when neighbors work together. It's easy to focus on your own needs and concerns, but a slight change in outlook can make a big difference in the day-to-day lives of a neighborhood and create a better, safer place to live for everyone. Check out some of our success stories.
 

What is Lakewood Linked?

Lakewood Linked is a community engagement program that believes neighbors comprise all elements of our neighborhood…

  • Faith organizations
  • Service organizations
  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Schools
  • Residents
  • Businesses
...Together we can make a difference.

Nextdoor.com
Nextdoor logoNextdoor.com is a social media site that helps facilitate communication with your neighbors. The City partners with Nextdoor.com and is able to post community and neighborhood based information that would be useful or of interest to learn about. The City is not able to see community conversations and does not utilize the site to respond to questions. Since 2013, the Nextdoor.com sites have grown from 10 to over 120. You can join the conversation.



Lakewood Faith CoalitionLakewood Faith Coalition
Introduced in 2014, The Lakewood Faith Coalition (LFC) a collaboration of over 35 Lakewood faith-based organizations and their members. LFC builds partnerships with neighborhoods, businesses, schools and nonprofit organizations. Currently, the LFC is focused on supporting the needs of Lakewood’s Title 1 Schools.

Lakewood Service Organizations
Representatives from Kiwanis, Rotary, Optimist and Elks Clubs in Lakewood assembled in 2016 to address ways in which to collaborate on community projects and make a collective impact to support needs. Currently, clubs are collaborating to support the needs of Rose Stein Elementary school which reopened after a 2-year closure for renovations.
