About this Event

Why The Westside

Our Westside Story is a celebration of Dwelling Place's efforts during the past decade to improve the lives of people living on the Westside of the city of Grand Rapids. It is a celebration of partnerships and collaboration with neighbors, local and state government, investors, lenders, and community institutions to ensure that quality affordable housing is permanently accessible for those who need it.

This event celebrates our response to a "Call to Action" initiated by Westside neighborhoods with concerns about the real impact that gentrification was having on affordable housing opportunities in their neighborhoods. With 116 new two and three bedroom apartments in some state of development across four housing communities, Dwelling Place is proud to proclaim that something grand is coming to Grand Rapids' West Side Neighborhoods.

We also celebrate our roots on the Westside where we have provided housing for over 20 years. We presently own and operate three separate housing communities on the Westside, providing 105 homes for our Westside Neighbors.

Guests and supporters will enjoy a casual night filled with local music, a strolling dinner, dancing, and mingling all while celebrating the mission of Dwelling Place.
