BALTIMORE – Elev8 Baltimore, an award-winning community schools initiative working in four schools in the city, has become a division of Humanim, the Baltimore-based nonprofit focused on workforce development, human services and social enterprise.
Elev8 Baltimore’s move to Humanim was official March 1, 2014. Elev8 Baltimore had been housed within East Baltimore Development, Inc. (EBDI) since its launch in 2009.
Elev8 Baltimore is a full-service community schools approach that provides high-quality out-of-school time activities, school-based health services, and resources and support for students and families in four East Baltimore schools.
“We are pleased to have Elev8 Baltimore become a division of Humanim because it’s a great fit,” said Henry E.

And Humanim has worked closely with Elev8 Baltimore for more than five years, successfully providing workforce services to family members in its four schools.”
