This is why we serve as a source of education, information, and social connections and support for families living on the near west side, as well as a source of information about Cleveland’s family-friendly events for visitors from outside the city center.
This is why we advance community development by promoting the near west side of Cleveland as a good place to raise families to current and prospective residents.
Therefore, we work on initiatives to improve public education, green space, public safety, retail, and other issues of importance in near west and downtown Cleveland neighborhoods.
The Near West Family Network (NWFN) is a volunteer-inspired and volunteer-led organization of people who live in the near west and downtown neighborhoods of Cleveland and want to help our community continue to thrive.
The Near West Family Network is a 100% volunteer organization. We look to our membership and volunteers to determine who we are, what we do, and how we can organize to benefit our neighborhoods and the people who live, work, or visit them.
The Near West Family Network appreciates all donations! While we do our best to keep our costs at a minimum and actively seek out partnerships and sponsorships from like-minded organizations, additional financial assistance helps us:
