This year, the Baltimore Community Fellowships Program selected its 25th cohort of social innovators and dynamic activists. Community fellows are individuals who are committed to implementing projects that address problems in underserved communities in Baltimore City. Launched in 1998, the Community Fellowships Network is now a corps of 233 committed and engaged advocates.
This year’s cohort of fellows includes the inaugural Lois Blum Feinblatt Community Mental Health Fellow. This special fellowship was created in 2021 in recognition of Lois Blum Feinblatt’s 100th birthday and honors her 60-year career as a social worker and mental health counselor.
In addition to supporting individuals, the Baltimore Community Fellowship Program partners with and supports organizations that strengthen the network of social entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership programs.
