About

Network of Lakewood Neighbors

Our Mission

The Lakewood Mutual Aid Group is a member of the Durham Mutual Aid network. Community members created this local chapter in order to respond to the economic and social hardships our Lakewood neighbors are facing.

Currently, our focus is on providing cash payments to our neighbors in need. Please visit our home page to donate.

Our History

The Lakewood Mutual Aid Network started during the COVID-19 pandemic to connect neighbors to each other in Durham’s Lakewood neighborhood: Tuscaloosa-Lakewood, Lyon Park, and Lakewood Park. Neighbors organized (or were already organized) in their blocks to communicate and check on each other with pressing needs and opportunities.
