Spotlight: Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance Promotes Family Life in Our City

The neighborhoods they are "a changin'" -- in Baltimore City, that is. Over the past several years, it's been so exciting to experience downtown's revitalization. Areas like Hampden, Patterson Park, and Pigtown have emerged as great places to live. And it's not just singles that are moving to these neighborhoods. Families are calling Baltimore City home too. Enter the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance (DBFA).

Established in 2008, the DBFA is a non-profit that fosters and promotes family life in Baltimore city by developing initiatives for strong public schools and early childhood programs, enhanced public safety and environmental quality, and expanded recreational and cultural opportunities. They've continued revitalization efforts by helping to turn city neighborhoods into vibrant communities. There's SO many more treasures in downtown Baltimore than the Inner Harbor these days! And that's thanks in part to the DBFA.

If your family has ever created memories in Baltimore City (and especially if you live there!), Economoms strongly encourages you to get involved with the DBFA. Consider becoming a member, volunteering, or making a donation. With a membership you not only support downtown family initiatives, you also get invited to DBFA members only events, like their upcoming Ice Skating Party on February 19, and receive discounts on local family-friendly attractions, like the Baltimore Museum of Industry, the B&O Railroad Museum, the Maryland Science Center, Port Discovery Children's Museum, and The Walters. Sounds to me like a good deal all round. :-)
