Function of Organization/Site:

Since 1984, Parks & People Foundation has worked to improve the quality of life in Baltimore's neighborhoods. Our staff, volunteers and partners in the community have developed innovative solutions to issues facing our city including the restoration of our neighborhoods and their natural resources as well as the academic enrichment and motivation of our children. In order to realize our vision of a healthy environment where people live, work, learn and play, we have formed a strategy targeting two major fields of endeavor: 

Great Parks, Clean Streams & Green Communities - Helping to improve the physical, social and environmental quality of neighborhoods through greening activities and forming networks among communities to sustain natural resources.

Motivating Youth - Programs nurturing children and supporting communities by working together to provide enriching activities for youth.
