inFusion Community Grants is a resident led, resident driven, and resident approved
community grounded grants program. The impetus for this program was the displacement of
nearly 700 families from their homes in East Baltimore to make way for the building of an
88-acre technology park. inFusion Community Grants Program collaborates with residents in the
following neighborhoods: C.A.R.E., McElderry Park, and Middle East (all bordering Johns
Hopkins Hospital) to restore long term residential power through participatory grantmaking and
supporting grassroots initiatives.
Video Lab Baltimore is an initiative of Baltimore United Viewfinders, a youth driven leadership
organization that uses the digital arts to tell participants’ stories about themselves and their
homes in and around the Middle East neighborhood.
Morgan CARES (Community Aligned Research solutions) is the community engagement core
of The Center for Urban Health Disparities Research & Innovation at Morgan State University.
Our primary focus is to foster collaborative academic and community partnerships through
community-based participatory research. The Morgan CARES community center, located at the
historical Hoen & Co Lithography building, is a collaborative space where our network can
participate in community events, seminars, workshops, training and more.
Center for Neighborhood Innovation/Hoen & Co is a collaborative workspace for
mission-driven organizations based out of East Baltimore. By providing access to tailored
facilities, shared resources, and interdisciplinary conversations, the CNI offers an environment
where members can grow and collaborate with community stakeholders.
