Great Schools Charles Village Neighborhood-School Partnership

The Great Schools Charles Village Neighborhood-School Partnership was one of the first to receive funding from the foundation’s Neighborhood-School Partnership Initiative, created in 2009. The partnership between Greater Homewood Community Corporation (now Strong City Baltimore), Margaret Brent Elementary Middle School, and The Barclay School, has positioned these public, neighborhood-zoned schools as assets to the Greater Charles Village community, resulting in enrollment increasing at both schools and rising property values. This grant provided $30,000 to Strong City Baltimore for community organizing and marketing focused on the schools, and $30,000 to each school for academic program enhancements.
