The WBC Community Development Corporation in partnership with Americorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), WWFF-BOC Neighborhood Association, Wayland Baptist Church and other businesses are joining together to improve northwest Baltimore neighborhoods and convert a vacant house into an affordable, livable home.

The Fairview Fellowship Project is designed to turn 3917 Fairview Avenue into an energy-efficient, affordable home for a Baltimore City family. The community day will be a day of work performed by local contractors, Americorps and community volunteers on the Fairview House. There will be games, music, food and fellowship for all volunteers at the adjacent Peace Garden located at 3204 Chelsea Terrace in Baltimore.

3917 Fairview is one of six vacant and deteriorating houses on the 3800 and 3900 blocks of Fairview Avenue. Come join us as we strive to bring attention to this problem, and to encourage our community to rise up and make their neighborhood safer and more beautiful!
