    Organization Mission

    Established in 1969, Strong City Baltimore (formerly Greater Homewood Community Corporation) is a grass-roots, nonprofit organization with a mission to build and strengthen neighborhoods and people in Baltimore. We help Baltimore's citizens get jobs, live in affordable homes, send their children to good schools, and build community ties.

    Much like the neighborhoods we serve, our programs support Strong City's approach to fulfilling its mission. Over the past 49 years, we have forged many successful partnerships, expanding the services we provide and widening our geographical range.

    We believe there are no quick fixes for the challenges that face Baltimore, but progress is achieved by building communities and building agency for individuals while helping them access the resources they need to improve their lives.
