Fueled by the belief that communities flourish when families thrive, DBFA's mission is to attract, retain and support Baltimore families by connecting communities and empowering families to advocate for great schools, safe streets and vibrant neighborhoods - the three things that matter most to families when deciding where to live.
DBFA recognizes that attracting and retaining families is a powerful and necessary instrument of urban revitalization. Given the critical role families play in catalyzing healthy cities, we engage socially active parents and community leaders to advocate for meaningful change across Baltimore.
DBFA believes that city families are vital to the growth, development and success of Baltimore. Families create strong, stable neighborhoods and are correlated with reduced crime, increased property values - and an increased tax base - and greater business opportunities.
