What’s Thread?

Thread harnesses the power of relationships to create a new social fabric of diverse individuals deeply engaged with young people facing the most significant opportunity and achievement gaps. Our community is committed to ending social isolation and building a more equitable culture in which everyone thrives.

What’s it like to be on the Thread team?

Our Thread community is hard-working, collaborative, and passionate about building community in Baltimore. We go all-in with care, compassion, and empathy. We believe small acts make a big difference. Thread’s home base is located inside of TouchPoint Baltimore, a co-working space at Mondawmin Mall. TouchPoint Baltimore brings together high performing organizations with the goals of creating a workforce pipeline and scaling collective social impact by leveraging the strengths of each organization. The organizations work within a model of collaboration where sharing is paramount—sharing resources, information, access to talent, and access to networks, as well as coordinating day-to-day to be able to provide services across constituencies.
