They reclaim brick, they reclaim wood, and they ultimately reclaim the struggling city of Baltimore. Brick + Board is a social enterprise division of Humanim, based in Baltimore, Maryland.

Along with their sister outfit Details Deconstruction, Brick + Board is committed to harnessing the deconstruction and salvage industries towards creating jobs for folks with barriers to employment: people who have struggled with addiction and/or were formerly incarcerated.

Watch this video about the amazing work Humanim is doing on the ground.

Humanim's mission is to support and empower individuals who face social or economic challenges — by building pathways to economic equity, opportunity, and independence.

Participants of the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Forum North America visited Humanim's Baltimore headquarters to gain insights into the work and impact of this social impact organization.
