Redefining Homesharing
Dr. Roland Anglin, Rebecca Burrett Sheppard and Gerard Joab
Redefining Homesharing with Dr. Roland Anglin, a national expert in community economic development and professor at Rutgers University, drew a lively group of interested city officials, funders and invested individuals to John Hopkins Club on November 6th. Dr. Anglin presented the results of his exploration on broadening Homesharing's impact in Maryland and entertained questions and comments, as well.
Extraordinary Storytellers
Extraordinary Storytellers
Last month, Charm City graciously hosted NeighborWorks
Executive Director Symposium. On their first night over 80 EDs were greeted by Baltimore storytellers who told our visitors about the real Baltimore and why we love our city.

Many people know Baltimore through The Wire, and not as a city of close knit neighborhoods. These lucky listeners learned that in Baltimore: neighbors can work together to repair and rehab their homes using tools from a community tool library; for one man a home is more than the American dream, it is his family's foundation, and a young man can thrive in a city that embraces and empowers its residents to dream, believe and achieve.  These Baltimore Girots offered a glimpse of life in our eclectic city of neighborhoods.

Funds For Building A Better Baltimore
The National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) and 13 of its member organizations announced a
collaboration with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. that will provide funds in 19 cities to foster homeownership, assist with rebuilding neighborhoods of color impacted by the foreclosure crisis, and promote diverse, inclusive communities. St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center was one of the organizations awarded funds to assist with the revitalization of neighborhoods in Baltimore City.


"NFHA is looking forward to working in collaboration with Wells Fargo to make sure that all communities have a chance at a fair recovery," said Shanna L. Smith, President and CEO of the National Fair Housing Alliance. "We are thrilled to see Wells Fargo's renewed efforts and leadership in this area."
