Each story in Lakewood’s 2016 All-America City Award presentation featured faith communities partnering with schools and underserved neighborhoods. The national recognition connected to the All-America City Award makes all of this collaboration and service make dollars and sense to our business leaders who, in turn, fund organizations like Lakewood Connects, which in turn, lead partnership efforts. The All-America City Award was the legitimacy boost we needed to take partnership to the next level in Lakewood!
