The Lockwood Foundation was founded by Jeffrey Lockwood in January of 2018 because he wanted to combine his two passions - helping people with diverse abilities, 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.  Involved in nonprofits for years at different levels from volunteers to executive leadership, in combination with being a mountain guide, Jeffrey was uniquely qualified to create a community organization that was geared toward the accessibility of outdoor trails and peaks.
