Community Service


2019 Year In Review Video

Mission Statement

The Mission of BOMA's Community Service Committee is to serve those "in need" within our community by identifying, evaluating and providing opportunities for BOMA Members to voluntarily contribute our time, skills and collected resources to worthy recipients in the greater Baltimore region.

Vision Statement

The Vision of BOMA's Community Service Committee is that all who are moved to participate will join with us in our endeavors. We believe that by promoting and managing our associations collective volunteering efforts, our collective efforts will positively impact those whom we endow. We believe that our work contributed collectively is more than we could accomplish or contribute individually.

Our History

In June 2003, Marty Josephs and the BOMA Board established the BOMA Community Service Committee under the direction of former president, Marc Fischer. The Committee's mission is to serve the greater Baltimore region by identifying, evaluating, and providing opportunities for BOMA members to positively impact the community. In the past, the Community Service Committee has supported organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Sarah's House, S.A.R.C. (Sexual Assault Recovery Center), Adelante Familia, Forbush School, Kennedy Krieger - P.A.C.T., Susan G. Komen, Moveable Feast and The Maryland Food Bank.

In 2007, the Community Service Committee created the debut legacy program, LEAP (Literary Empowerment Advocacy Program). Utilizing the resources of BOMA Baltimore's membership base, LEAP is designed to make an immediate and lastingimpact on our community by enriching the education of our youth. The committee adopted Woodhome Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore City as our first partner. Together with our BOMA members, LEAP renovated the Woodhome library in 2008. When all was said and renovated, the library had new ceiling tiles, paint, shelving, tables and chairs, and books. In 2009, LEAP renovated the teacher's lounge as part of the First Annual Day of Service. For additional project information see the www.boma-leap.org.

This Committee is always seeking new members to support the planning and execution of future projects. If you are passionate about community service and enjoy working with a great team, this is the opportunity for you.
