Belair-Edison Neighborhoods, Inc.
Belair-Edison is the community where the Healthy Neighborhoods strategy was first introduced to Baltimore. The Goldseker Foundation began supporting commercial revitalization work along the Belair Road corridor in 1993, and in 2001, the foundation began funding housing counseling and residential rehabilitation services as well. In addition to commercial, residential, and community organizing activities, BENI has increasingly become a partner to its local schools, from fostering relationships between a traditional neighborhood public elementary school and a charter middle school, to the service of its staff members on leadership teams for Morgan State University’s Morgan Community Mile. This grant funded general operating costs.
