Opportunities to Help
Supporting Baltimore City
SOURCE is working closely with partnering Community-Based Organizations to determine community-led initiatives and needs in Baltimore City. We are posting these initiatives and needs on the SOURCE Facebook Page as information becomes available. If you are looking to get involved or would like to support the Baltimore Community, please follow the SOURCE Facebook Page to learn about initiatives taking place in the City. We also encourage everyone to #supportlocal, and support our local businesses and restaurants that have been impacted. #onebaltimore

Interested students, faculty and staff with relevant backgrounds can find out more information here.
