The Westside Collaborative seeks 3 outcomes

Get It together

The nonprofit system of agencies and services is aligned for maximum efficiency and impact, leveraging inter- organizational assets and relationships to more holistically serve the West Grand Rapids community and its residents.

Rally the troops

Action-oriented, mutually reinforcing workgroups—made

up of affected residents, nonprofit leaders, and community stakeholders— achieve measurable change in areas of focus identified by neighbors.


WSC member organizations powerfully leverage their collective voice to support or oppose social/political policy and/or development that impacts the residents of our Westside community.
