We are committed to ensuring that the benefits of our work extend to the entire community, especially our most underserved residents. To make this happen, we engage the community using everything from surveys, to public meetings, to social media, to task forces. Then we collaborate with our Partners to act on shared priorities.
We are governed by a Steering Committee reflecting the diversity of our Partners and area. Our work is guide by two action plans created with broad community participation.— the 2012 Homewood Community Partners Initiative: Call to Action (commissioned by Johns Hopkins University), and the 2017 Front & Center: A 5-Year Equity Plan for Central Baltimore.
Our work includes: increasing access to health care, creating COVID-19 response initiatives, aid for community centers and youth service providers, transforming blight into community green spaces, helping local businesses improve buildings, and coordinating community participation in major projects, such as Penn Station redevelopment.
