Community Connections

A connected community is resourceful and resilient. The WCDC serves as a hub, linking neighbors, businesses, organizations and community groups. By weaving these connections, the WCDC is better connected as well, helping us to hear the needs and adapt and grow to meet them. 


We offer the following community connections:

  • The Changemaker Network – our membership network connects westside neighbors and organizations who want to meet each other and make a difference in our community.  For more info 

  • The Westside Business Network – members are local retail, service, home-based and creative businesses who come together to share their needs and concerns, as well as their visions for the Westside. For more info 

  • Idea Hub – twice a year we gather local leaders to share ideas for addressing needs in the community. In the Idea Hub, we help each other by brainstorming, identifying resources and possible next steps and preparing projects that may be eligible for subgrants. Email for info.

  • Community Partners – the WCDC partners with regional leaders to bring resources and opportunities to the westside. Get assistance with home-buying, environmental conservation or growing your business with our many partners. For Partner List 

  • Resources – We will be adding a Westside Business Directory and Community Resources Directory to our website. If you would like to sponsor or support us, we could use your help!  Email to help.
