  • Mission:
  • Adopt A Block Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, established in 1991, operating in Maryland to effectively provide relief and aid to the people of Baltimore and other regions. Our mission is to bring restoration and revitalization to the areas we serve.

  • Overview:
  • Adopt A Block fosters its goals through its two major programs: A Can Can Make A Difference – a food and aid distribution program; and Compassion Commission – a summer youth program. Through these programs we bring together area residents, various local agencies, local churches, community leaders and associations, local businesses, the police department, and a diversity of social service and health agencies to work together toward unification and cooperation, and to restore and revitalize their communities.

  • History:
  • Adopt A Block was established in 1991 and incorporated in 1994. Since then we have fed and provided assistance to the people of Maryland, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, West Virginia not only on a daily basis with food assistance, but during hurricane and super storm crisis situations. To date our Compassion Commission program has given away 11 homes to people in Baltimore city who have never before owned homes. We also impact the city of Baltimore with our other programs such as our thanksgiving diner for those who are unable to afford a thanksgiving meal, annual christmas toy giveaway, annual biweekly block parties and a program to honor a male and female student in a Baltimore city high school with the highest academic performance.
