Hurricane Sandy Relief

Youth Development Center
The Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center was created through a partnership between Living Classrooms Foundation, the Carmelo Anthony Foundation, and the Housing Authority of Baltimore City.
A native Baltimorean, Carmelo Anthony contributed over $1.5 million to reopen the Youth Development Center, a 29,000 square foot facility located in East Baltimore. The Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center responds to the community’s need for intervention that supports the academic and social development of disadvantaged youth.
The program provides services in five core areas: Education and Career Development, Character and Civic Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts and Cultural Enrichment, and Sports and Recreation.
