An alliance of amazing nonprofit members

While the Westside Collaborative has various for-profit, individual, and government partnerships, at our very core, we are an alliance of nonprofit member agencies streamlining services, programming, and resources for greater efficiencies and working collectively to maximize sustainable impact in our community.

Steepletown is a vital part of the northwest Grand Rapids community. Focusing on developing neighbors of all ages, Steepletown provides exemplary services in preschool, teens, young adult, adult, and senior programming. 


The Inner City Christian Federation provides so much to the greater Grand Rapids community, but serves an essential role in West Grand Rapids as one of the few leaders paving ways for neighbors to access affordable housing.


Under the leadership of Peter D'Arienzo, the John Ball Zoo has re-committed to its mission in serving community in West Grand Rapids. Their collaborative spirit can be witnessed in the annual Westside Cleanup, serving as hosts to many neighborhood organizations in the exciting spring event!


The Other Way Ministries served as the fiduciary and home organization for the Westside Collaborative through 2018. For decades, The Other Way has been a key leader in community service and programming.
