About Live Baltimore:

Live Baltimore believes residents are our city’s greatest assets. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we fight the persistent and devastating population loss that began in Baltimore City in the 1950s and which has destabilized neighborhoods and limited families’ opportunities to flourish in their communities. We are effective in this work through programs designed to persuade prospective residents, empower existing residents, and influence the real estate industry.

Our Core Values are at the heart of everything we do and drive our team’s success:

  1. Love Baltimore. We love Baltimore to our cores.
  2. Stay Positive. We celebrate our wins big and small.
  3. Be Helpful. We model humility and service.
  4. Get Results. We are nothing if not effective.
  5. Collaborate. We accomplish more together.
