Newborn Holistic Ministries is the parent organization of Martha’s Place, a recovery program for women who are conquering addictions and changing their lives. The organization is located on the border of two struggling, yet hopeful, Baltimore neighborhoods. The staff and residents of Martha’s Place have given hope and inspiration to the community. They created a sacred place that includes a mural and a small garden for sitting just outside of their recovery housing along a bustling section of Pennsylvania Avenue. Their intent is to memorialize all community members who have died as a result of drugs.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
