TouchPoint - Baltimore Corps' new office

Baltimore Corps entered into an innovative partnership with ThreadInvested Impact and The Center for Urban Families with the goals of creating a workforce pipeline and scaling collective social impact by leveraging the strengths of each organization. The organizations plan to work within a model of collaboration where sharing is paramount—sharing resources, information, access to talent, and access to networks, as well as coordinating day-to-day to be able to provide services across constituencies. To efficiently facilitate coordination, staff from all four organizations will be housed at TouchPoint Baltimore. Financially supported by corporate partners Whiting Turner and BGE, this will be the first TouchPoint Center of its kind with the goal of scaling the model citywide and potentially nationally once the efficacy of the model is proven.
