David A. Greenberg


For ten years, David Greenberg has served as CEO and President of The League for People with Disabilities in Baltimore. With a diverse background in both healthcare and business, David escaped the corporate world, in search of more enriching, rewarding work. And he’s found a perfect home at the League—helping people with disabilities live a better life and enjoy the rights they are deserved.

And how fortunate we are that David has also added the role of Firesoul to his responsibilities. The Sacred Place at the League is a much-used green space for catching one’s breath, finding peace and simply connecting to nature. It’s hard work—for all involved, both the individuals striving to overcome challenges or seek independence, and the staff alike—and having a beautiful space in nature to regroup can be crucial.

“A Firesoul is a passionate advocate for calming space for people to improve their dispositions and/or reflect on a pressing issue.”

When you meet David—you can’t help but feel inspired by his drive and enthusiasm for all that he does. He’s got that contagious glimmer, that belief in making things better, in helping others. Transform part of the building into a nightclub for people with disabilities? Absolutely! And let’s do it every Saturday night.

No question—he’s a Firesoul, through and through.

“My reward? Seeing smiles on those who are in our garden.”
