Bank of America Charitable Foundation Gift Helps SWCOS' Neighborhood Fellows Program

The University of Maryland School of Social Work’s Community Outreach Services Program (SWCOS) continues to work in the field of community economic development, placing Neighborhood Fellows in community-based organizations throughout Baltimore City to increase capacity in their efforts to build stronger neighborhoods. This university-community partnership allows for reciprocal learning and understanding: students contribute much-needed capacity to neighborhood revitalization organizations while gaining invaluable hands-on learning in the community development field; in the process, community development organizations receive assistance in furthering their work in target blocks and the overall neighborhood.

SWCOS is grateful for the partnership of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, which will be critical to helping SWCOS effectively transform communities across Baltimore. The Foundation’s support of $10,000 has achieved added capacity to Baltimore City community-based organizations while training future generations of social workers.
