Our Mission

Black Women Build-Baltimore is a home ownership and wealth building initiative that trains black women in carpentry, electrical, and plumbing by restoring vacant and deteriorated houses in West Baltimore.

Our Values

That black women deserve to be treated with dignity for their inherent worth as human beings.

Our Methods

We understand that oppression is experienced at the intersection of identities, conditions, systems, policies, and practices; therefore, we address barriers that impact the ability of black women to thrive.

Our Goals

To bring home ownership to black women in Baltimore. To train women in trades-related skills through home renovation. To create wealth and build community by dismantling the barriers that work against our ability to thrive.
