Baltimore, MD

Break A Difference (B•A•D) programs are offered in a variety of cities across the nation. Our Baltimore site tackles a multitude of causes including poverty, homelessness, and their environmental effects on the city. Volunteers will staff food pantry banks, upgrade transitional housing facilities, and help to maintain shelters while getting a better understanding on the problems affecting the city.
