Largely funded by the Family League of Baltimore, the Y is a leader as a Community Schools agency. Community Schools are located in neighborhoods of extreme poverty and are designated for added support to address issues like hunger, which prevents a child from learning and thriving.  Working with the principal, families and other community stakeholders, the Y operates in several Community Schools throughout Baltimore, where an on-site Y Community Schools Director and/or Coordinator facilitates fundamental supports for students such as access to food, proper clothing and school supplies which enable students to do what they came to school for in the first place -- to learn.

For more information on how you or your organization can get involved with Community Schools, please contact Charmayne Turner at charmayneturner@ymaryland.org
