Community Collaboration

The Lakewood Community Collaboration was created by the Lakewood City Council to implement strategies to foster a community where children, youth, families neighborhoods can thrive.

The Collaboration is an organization with an open membership, constituted of human services agencies, community organizations, businesses, individuals and others committed to providing united and comprehensive human services to Lakewood.

The Lakewood Community Collaboration meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 9:30am to 11:00am at the Lakewood City Hall Council Chambers (with the exception of the months of July, August and December).
