Lawrence CommunityWorks is a non-profit community development corporation dedicated to the sustained economic, social, and physical revitalization of the City of Lawrence, Massachusetts.
LCW and its members are working to revitalize the City of Lawrenceby capitalizing on the power of relationships. We target issues that are of importance to our members like renovating blighted properties, helping families build assets and improving access to higher education.
LCW empowers members to advance economically and invest in their community through real estate development, financial education, youth programming and community organizing. We do these programs but in a very different way. We do it in a way where we all work together in a give-get environment where people are welcomed, valued and connected to information, opportunity and to each other. Essentially, LCW and its members are changingLawrence from a city with few opportunities to a community where families and neighborhoods thrive.
