Belair-Edison Neighborhoods, Inc.
Belair-Edison Neighborhoods, Inc. (BENI) is a community-based nonprofit that has worked for nearly 23 years to advance neighborhood revitalization in the Northeast Baltimore community of Belair-Edison. Our work includes community marketing and outreach, community organizing, homeownership counseling, and small business development. Responding to the destabilizing impact of rapid racial transition, high rates of foreclosure, and a stagnant real estate market, BENI's mission is to foster an environment in which residents and merchants are confident investing their time, effort, and money.
BENI's work is focused on five goals: 1) a strong real estate market, 2) a strong commercial corridor, 3) a positive image for Belair-Edison inside and outside the neighborhood, 4) attractive and accessible public spaces - main corridors, parks, and gateways, and 5) strong social ties among residents and the ability to manage day-to-day neighborhood concerns.
