Community & Economic Development Programs 

The Bon Secours works in partnership with Operation ReachOut SouthWest Baltimore and other community organizations to provide essential community services to residents of southwest Baltimore.

The Community Support Center at 26 North Fulton Avenue  in West Baltimore houses many of the community and economic development programs supported by the Foundation. These programs include:

In additional to the Fulton Avenue location, Bon Secours maintains offices for the Women’s Resource Center on Pulaski Street, across from Bon Secours Hospital.  Each of these programs is funded strictly through the generosity of area residents, business owners, community associations and grants from area foundations.

 

Clinical Care Support Programs 

Bon Secours supplements the health system’s comprehensive services by conducting programs in the following areas: 

  • Developing and managing safe and affordable housing (Providing housing assistance)
  • Initiating and supporting neighborhood development and revitalization efforts
  • Job readiness and job training
  • GED classes and tutoring
  • Money management workshops, including how to obtain financial assistance, cash checking, and tax preparation
  • Health care education

In all of its activities, the Foundation develops enduring community partnerships marked by collaboration, a comprehensive approach to community development, and the ability to leverage additional resources – financial and programmatic – for the community. Building on the community’s existing assets, the Foundation believes that true community change is only possible when it is grounded in resident-led program planning, implementation and evaluation.
