About Us

We strive to connect holistic, community programs and services with the people that need them the most.

Our unique approach to community activation, transformation, and healing has always been people-driven and mission-focused. We aim to meet community members where they are at, and create opportunities for human connection to break the cycle of generational trauma.

We exist to empower the marginalized and disadvantaged through innovative methods that are designed to meet each individual’s unique needs. By offering education opportunities, mental health resources, medical care, and emergency support, we are able to change the trajectory of one life at a time—causing a ripple effect that future generations will benefit from. 

KEYS is stepping up to drive the change Baltimore residents so deserve. Because past efforts, approaches, and methods of community-wide transformation have failed, we’re doing things differently. Through legislative partnerships, a dedicated volunteer base, and generous donors that care about the future of our city, we are able to provide the structure and support needed to see real transformation.

OUR MISSION

To motivate, educate, and transform opportunity populations through the use of non-traditional, unconventional, and non-linguistic methods of self-discovery. 

Our Core Values

INTEGRITY

Trust is at the core of every healthy relationship and serves as the foundation of our connection to the local community.

UNITY

Leveraging the different strengths, perspectives, and experiences we each bring to the table is how we move forward.

EMPATHY

To deeply relate to another person is the first step to helping them and a powerful way we can enrich ourselves.

SUSTAINABILITY

Teamwork is crucial but it is self-development and self-sufficiency that create long-term success.
