Celebrating Our 20th Anniversary

Time certainly flies!

This year, we are celebrating our 20th anniversary as an organization that has transformed the Lake Worth West community.

With our partners at Palm Beach County government, Sheriff’s Office, Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, and so many other agencies and businesses, Lake Worth West Resident Planning Group accomplished what once seemed an impossible task – turning a dilapidated stretch of homes filled with drug dealers into a thriving community of active parents who are preparing their children to succeed in school and in life.

It all started in 1995 when residents decided it was time to fight back against crime and take back our community off Military Trail near Lake Worth Road in Palm Beach County. We obtained our nonprofit status in 1999 and began our steady growth in membership, scope, programming, and budget.

Read our entire history here.

Visit our community today – and you’ll see parents taking classes to improve their children’s literacy as well as their own, you’ll see middle and high school students getting mentored as they prepare for college and the business world, and you’ll see other families strolling through the community and enjoying our playground and ballfields without the fear of getting harassed by drug dealers.

“There’s so much to celebrate,” said Rhonda Rogers, executive director of Lake Worth West Resident Planning Group. “We’ll be marking our accomplishments throughout this year with small and large celebrations.”
