About Us

1C9 started with a small team of Faith-Based leaders in Baltimore that eventually became our Board of Directors. In the summer of 2014, this team was invited to an Immersion Experience with the Tampa Underground Network - A network leading the way in faith-based community development. From there, 1C9 was inspired to slowly start partnering with other citywide community development movements. In 2016, The 1C9 Leadership Foundation joined as a member of the Christian Community Development Association. To start our journey, we began to volunteer with, and develop relationships with charities such as Back On My Feet Baltimore as well as local churches like Gallery Church Baltimore, who sought to build a better future for Baltimore. In 2018, we partnered with the Baltimore-Washington United Methodist Conference to engage in a faith-based fellowship called The Change Makers Project and shortly after successful training and investment, 1C9 began the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status. Our first and most recent community development work was in partnership with Will B. Better Bodies where we helped launch the first Community Health Fair in West Baltimore. In 2020 The 1C9 Leadership Foundation's Emerging Leaders Program will launch. To learn more about our faith-based community development work for 2020, please email us.
