Our Partners.

The Westside Collaborative is composed of 501c3 agency members who have significant impact on the residents living in West Grand Rapids. While our members need NOT be located within our boundaries, they must serve the people in our boundaries in a significant way.

Recognizing the vast nature of our work, the Westside Collaborative also partners with non-member government offices, businesses, and organizations to assist in the community work they champion.
