Exemplary leadership

The Westside Collaborative Board of Directors is composed of some of the most wonderful people you'll find ANYWHERE in Grand Rapids. But, thankfully, for various reasons, they are VERY fond of our dear Westside. 

A diverse group of talented individuals from the Westside neighborhoods, Westside businesses, the for-profit sector, the nonprofit sector, education system, and much more serve as the governing body that dictates the course the Westside Collaborative will take. They do so with input from the Executive Director, but also with insights from the Core Team who give feedback and recommendations from the "on-the-ground" perspective. 

With leaders at every level, the Westside Collaborative is able to navigate the sensitive and vulnerable spaces of aligning, partnering, sharing, and learning with local support services.
