Strong City Baltimore will host the ninth annual Neighborhood Institute on Saturday, April 16th.  The group focuses on community organizing and the event is a meeting of the minds for neighborhood leaders, nonprofit advocates, and community development professionals. The goal of the institute is to teach and share ideas with the hope that participants will be able to use the information to change their communities and improve their lives.
