House of Ruth Maryland
The House of Ruth Maryland leads the fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting the attitudes, behaviors and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services necessary to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear.
Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA)
Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA) began with David Slomkowski who wanted to use his athletic abilities to support individuals living with disabilities in Baltimore City. In 2007, David partnered with the William S. Baer School and began a relationship with Baer School Students who then became ASA's first athletes.
Reading Partners places community volunteers in low-income schools to help kids master basic reading. We've been part of the Baltimore educational landscape since 2012, when we opened our first reading center at Friendship Academy at Cherry Hill with the strong support of the Baltimore City education community.
Founded in 1996, Playworks expanded to Maryland in 2005. Playworks Maryland serves low-income schools across Baltimore through our year-round, on-site support services. We're also reaching thousands more students across Maryland through professional development workshops for schools and youth organizations.
Leveling the Playing Field
Leveling the Playing Field is a non-profit organization that gives underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports participation. We do this through the donation of used and excess sporting equipment to programs and schools serving low-income communities.
Next One Up

The innovative approach pushes beyond the boundaries of typical programs to make a lasting difference in students' lives. Next One Up's goal is to ensure that middle school students find their way to a good high school where they can truly thrive, and that they successfully graduate on a clear path to college or career.
