We believe that the military skill set is ideal for the initiation and organization of community projects. Our organization aims to empower veterans by utilizing the characteristics typically strengthened through military service, such as a sense of mission, a dedication to duty, and a love of country. We build community by bringing together service-minded veterans and civilians to serve our community on the home front.
Our Work, Your Work
Founded in 2010, The 6th Branch (T6B) works with neighborhood leaders to transform vacant lots into new and vital community green spaces as well as provide support to Baltimore City Public Schools. In 2017, nearly 2,500 volunteers provided more than 8,000 volunteer hours on 120 project days in four neighborhoods and three schools. Volunteers did everything from clearing debris, to running an urban farm, to painting new walls in schools.
