Funded Partnerships

Family League has deep relationships at all levels, from the Mayor’s office to on-the-ground community organizations and is able to bring key players to the table to develop tools for change. Family League also connects and convenes private and public funders, local community leaders, educators, health professionals and business to develop a shared agenda for action.

We invest funding into community-based organizations to help children and families in Baltimore reach their full potential. We strive to improve institutions so that individuals can grow, learn, and build a better community.

Family League’s funded partners are our link to Baltimore. We connect a wide range of partners with funding opportunities to help them mutually reach our goal that by 2030, all children in Baltimore will be born healthy, succeed academically, graduate high school and transition into higher education and the workforce.

Grant Opportunities

INVITATION TO APPLY (ITA): FY21 Community School Cohort Leads & New Coordinator Professional Learning Community Cohort Leads
DEADLINE EXTENDED: August 7, 2020 – 4:00pm

Family League is seeking current Community School Coordinators to serve as Cohort Leads to plan and facilitate Cohort Meetings and New Coordinator PLC throughout the FY21 fiscal year.

A full-time Community School Coordinator (CSC) brings together resources and leverages partnerships to transform a school into a hub of integrated service delivery, creating one seamless access point to critical supports. Community Schools are guided by a bi-annual needs assessment and annually developed Action Plan, informed by the needs assessment, that are tailored to the unique needs of that school and identifies strategies for improvement in: Community Development, Family Engagement, Health and Social Supports, Youth Development, Enhanced Academics and Enrichment, and College and Career Readiness.

Family League is committed to building the capacity of our funded partners by providing free professional development and peer learning opportunities. As such, peer development opportunities are provided to help build the skillsets and competencies of Community School Coordinators. All Community School Coordinators participate in cohorts that meet three times a year, while new Community School Coordinators participate in a New Coordinator Professional Learning Community (PLC) that meets five times a year.
