The Lockwood Foundation was created by Jeffrey Lockwood in Jan 2018 because he wanted to combine his two passions - helping children and people with disabilities, and sharing the great outdoors with others. Jeffrey is a professional mountain guide and is the owner and lead guide of Lockwood Backcountry Guide Service. In addition to being a mountain guide, he has been a special needs and disability caregiver since 2012. He grew up in a low-income, single parent household, so he is also invested in seeing that underprivileged youth get the opportunity to explore and enjoy the outdoors in a healthy, safe environment. Involved in nonprofits for years, Jeffrey was uniquely qualified to create a community organization that was geared toward the accessibility of outdoor adventure.
