Adopt a block, inc. Is a coalition of community groups working together to bring restoration to the inner city of baltimore, block by block. Their mission is to minister and serve the whole man - body, soul and spirit. The organization operates out of its facilities in baltimore, maryland.
Adopt a block parties bring resources and christ-centered entertainment to baltimore's city blocks to help begin the process of change. Bags of groceries, clothing, hot dogs and drinks are handed out from booths. People are linked to organizations providing employment, education, medical information, child services and local community contacts. Can can make a difference is the largest food distribution center in maryland that distributes its food for free. Can can feeds the hungry by the thousands. Compassion commission program is an intense time of outreach and ministry for youth. We bring in hundreds of teenagers, equip them with god's word, and then send them out into the city. They rebuild a house for a family in need, and they also rebuild the lives of broken people in the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Some of the stuff they have is really old and I don't know if anyone would but it... but that might also be my personal taste. But also with a thrift store, I guess you really can only work with the donations you get.
