We want to hear from you! 

The Southwest Collaborative, a coalition of neighborhood leaders (board and staff members of Southwest Minneapolis neighborhoods, including Lynnhurst), are working together to address funding needs, provide robust programming, and equitable and inclusive community engagement within our neighborhoods.

We invite you to participate in a focus group to share your important insight on the needs of your neighborhood, and how this new neighborhood coalition can help meet those needs. DeYoung Consulting Services is conducting the focus groups with residents of all the neighborhoods, and the information gathered will be combined to inform how the Collaborative should be structured and serve the communities. 

Through the SW Collaborative, we hope to leverage external resources collectively to secure funds from governmental agencies, foundations, and corporations for future neighborhood regional efforts and work together to develop and implement shared programming focused on community engagement.

Here are the 4 dates that we will be facilitating focus groups. Sign up for the focus group you are available to participate in:

1. Virtual Focus Group 1: May 1, 10-11am

2. Virtual Focus Group 2: May 2, 11am-12pm

3. In- Person Focus Group 1: May 7, 4-5pm

4. In-Person Focus Group 2: May 8, 4-5pm

Thank you in advance for your participation.
