Community Connect

Through programs and services, the Lealman Exchange promotes an inclusive community in which all residents have a sense of ownership and empowerment.

Within the walls of the Lealman Exchange are a multitude of community partners dedicated to empowering our neighbors with the resources needed to thrive. The programs and services here at LEX allow our community members the freedom to dream, enhance their quality of life and connect their present to their future through transitional immediate needs assistance, as well as career planning, continuing education, and workforce development.

A Collective Approach

Design and implement the initiative with a priority placed on equity

Include community members in the collaborative

Use data to continuously learn, adapt, and improve

Build a culture that fosters relationshipstrust, and respect across the community

The Lealman Exchange strives to meet the needs of all Lealman residents as a portal for connecting to a network of services at the Exchange and in the surrounding community. To do so, LEX has developed a Collective Impact approach, strategically developing a group of resources and services designed to support our neighbors as a whole through local partnerships and organizations. From workforce development, soft skill workshops, financial training, mental health support, veteran’s services, and complete health and wellness, LEX partners meet our neighbors where they are to assess the support needed to grow and thrive. 

To learn more about the Collective Impact and how the Lealman Exchange strategic plan was developed, visit the St. Petersburg Foundation’s website below.
