The greater Coppin Heights community is a dynamic neighborhood undergoing positive change.

With your help, we can continue to make our neighborhood a welcoming part of Baltimore City and a beacon of hope.


Together, the changes we make today will benefit both those who call our community home and future residents looking for a safe, comfortable place to grow.
