United Way of Central Maryland and The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) are expecting! Help us prepare for 14 babies who will be joining our newest Family Center in the Poppleton neighborhood.
The neighborhoods of West Baltimore are among the city’s most under-resourced, and Poppleton has struggled against structural barriers for decades. In partnership with UMB, we are working to improve lives in the Poppleton neighborhood through our nationally acclaimed Neighborhood Zone model.
Focused on multi-generational support, the United Way Neighborhood Zone in Poppleton will offer an on-site Family Center, providing quality early childhood education, full-day care for children, and professional support and resources for expectant and parenting student parents. Programs also include housing assistance, and quick referrals to critical health and human services through an on-site 211 Maryland United Way Helpline professional.
Donate to help us provide cribs, high chairs, toys, clothes, and books for the incoming students. Learn how a sponsorship gift can make an impact, too.
