Be a Superhero

Ensure a bright future for West Baltimore kids

Improving lives, one child at a time 

Your donation means our youngest neighbors in Baltimore have the tools for success

Children are a precious gift. They hold the keys to our collective future, and need special guidance throughout their childhood to ensure they grow into thriving adults.

Bon Secours Community Works offers several donor-funded programs for kids and teens in West Baltimore. Your gift for Children and Youth ensure services are available free-of-charge to put them on a path to success.

Early Head Start 

Success in learning starts long before kindergarten. Bon Secours supports our Early Head Start program to provide intensive and comprehensive child development and family support services to pregnant women and low-income families with infants and toddlers.

Your donation for Bon Secours Community Works supports programs like Early Head Start, which helps parents form a healthy attachment with their young children and nurture them toward developmental milestones and eventual success in school and life. Home visits and counseling help identify the needs of families, like safe housing, nutrition, and financial security.

Youth Employment & Entrepreneurship Program 

Bon Secours Community Works' Youth Employment & Entrepreneurship Program helps teens find summer employment and opportunities to develop the skills to succeed in their future careers.

Your gift helps provide a much-needed summer or after-school job for a teen in West Baltimore. Internships and other opportunities offer exposure to a variety of industries and help youth develop the skills to enter the workforce or launch their own business.
