Community outreach in Baltimore during the winter months has a powerful and positive impact on the city. It helps to provide essential services to those in need, such as shelter, warm clothing, and hot meals. These services provide a sense of security and comfort to people who may otherwise be struggling to survive during the cold winter months. Additionally, community outreach organizations often provide educational opportunities to help people gain skills and resources to improve their lives. These programs help to empower individuals and improve the overall quality of life in the city. By providing both practical and emotional support, community outreach initiatives have a lasting impact on the people of Baltimore.

Digital inequity is an issue that continues to plague Baltimore City and many other urban areas across the country. Smalltimore Homes, along with our organizations in Baltimore City, is increasing access to digital technology through education, and its partners, fill the gap with devices such as computers and the internet, which is essential to education, job opportunities, and economic growth. Unfortunately, Baltimore City residents face numerous barriers to access, such as the high cost of computers and internet service, lack of access to physical infrastructure, and limited digital literacy. This can result in educational and economic disparities between those who have digital access and those who do not.

To address this issue, local organizations have been working to provide digital access to underserved populations. For example, the Digital Harbor Foundation provides free access to computers, educational programming, and digital literacy training in underserved Baltimore neighborhoods. The City of Baltimore also provides free Wi-Fi access at some public libraries, parks, and recreation centers.

Despite these efforts to bridge the digital divide, Baltimore City still has a long way to go before digital equity is realized. To further this progress, we must continue to support and invest in programs that provide digital access and digital literacy training to underserved communities. We must also advocate for policies that reduce the cost of computers and internet service, and advocate for investment in physical infrastructure to expand access. Only then can we ensure that all Baltimore City residents have access to the digital tools they need to succeed.

The 2021 Bunting Neighborhood Leadership Program has concluded, but a group of cohort members created a supportive community of black women, amongst one another, which grew to be an inclusive safe space for all. Check out our ED's video using the blue button below!

The Johns Hopkins', Urban Health Institute - Bunting Neighborhood Leadership Program offers an impact curriculum to cohort members. This is from their website::

"This curriculum was developed through a committee representing community leaders and academia, and a scan of leadership programs from around the country. The core content areas we decided as the foundation for the curriculum include orientation to leadership, relationship building, communications, policy and advocacy, deconstructing racism and systems building. Experiences that facilitate knowledge and skill building are shared through instruction, collaborative projects, networking with influential stakeholders and relationship building. Leaders are actively engaged in their own learning through self-study, discovery learning, case studies, community assessment and a variety of other strategies. As the leaders learn by doing, and we provide them with a combination of didactic instruction, experiential learning and collaboration with mentors and other fellows, and opportunities to expand their social networks. The key elements that are built into these experiences include: A) Engaging the community – Emphasizing collective power, acting together and advocating and developing or influencing policy to address a community need B) Identifying the issue – Be able to conduct needs assessments and issue identification that emphasizes learning from the community. C) Deconstructing the issue – identify the relevant pieces of the issue that can be changed or improved. It is important to know the communities strengths/weaknesses/opportunities for change. D) Developing outcomes for change - Be able to develop outcomes for change, develop systems of accountability and measurement, and follow through with a plan. Faculty and guest speakers are drawn from across Baltimore’s academic, community-based organizations, government, business and philanthropy sectors and each is selected because of their expertise in one or more facets of leadership. Indicated below, are descriptions of the core components of Bunting Neighborhood Leadership Program curriculum."
