The 29th Street Community Center was born in the place of the Barclay Recreation Center, which shut down in 2011.
The 29th Street Community Center’s mission is to provide resources, free and low-cost programming, and relationship building year-round for youth and families in our community and Baltimore. We strive to serve as a hub for community members to be able to grow their programs and businesses while creating pipelines for the youth in our community to realize their full potential by providing afterschool and summer programming as well as employment and leadership opportunities.
