The Why

About BNN

During what is arguably the most challenging period in our lifetime, it is more important than ever for Baltimoreans to unite. We face a deadly virus that threatens to tear us apart. Necessary distancing leaves our most vulnerable residents isolated without access to emotional support. In this moment of crisis, we refuse to turn our backs on our neighbors. The Baltimore Neighbors Network provides a virtual community of trained volunteers to offer hope, comfort and social solidarity. We also enlist pro bono clinicians to help address the looming epidemic of loneliness and isolation that COVID-19 will create. Baltimore's greatest asset is our people. We are the medicine.

The What

How it Works

1

CREATING CONNECTIONS

Trained volunteers make calls to neighbors to offer support, assess well-being and create critical connections.

2

GIVING BACK IN RETURN

These neighbors are then invited to join the Neighbors Network, fostering a cycle of peer-to-peer support.

3

PROVIDING MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

Neighbors that need additional support are connected to mental health ambassadors and pro bono clinicians.
