the Neighborhood Design Center

Pro Bono Community Design

Conceptual design assistance for community-initiated projects. 

Community Design Works partners with neighborhood organizations, nonprofits, and schools to work on community-initiated projects that improve the places we live, work, play, and learn. Working with volunteer professionals, we assist with architectural, landscape, and planning initiatives in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County.

Is my project the right fit?

  • Do you have a community-initiated project with which you want assistance? 

  • Is your project related to the built environment?

  • Are you ready for a 4-8 month process? 

  • Is there a coalition of at least 6-8 other neighbors or local stakeholders invested in the project?
