Intersection of Change (formerly Newborn Holistic Ministries) is a community-based nonprofit focused on community development in west Baltimore. The organization is dedicated to providing programs that enrich the economic, social and spiritual lives of those dealing with poverty related issues in the Sandtown-Winchester, Upton and surrounding communities.

Work to date has resulted in significant neighborhood revitalization of the 1900 and 2000 blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue through the full renovation of six previously vacant and dilapidated buildings, transformation of 18 vacant lots into community green spaces and meditative gardens, creation of two dozen neighborhood murals, and conversion of 96,000 sq./ft. of vacant lots into an urban farm.

Programs by Intersection of Change include Martha’s Place, a recovery program for women overcoming substance abuse and homelessness, Jubilee Arts, a program that uses art as a catalyst for social change and as a tool for empowerment, and Strength to Love II, a program that operates an urban farm and serves ex-offenders returning to the community from incarceration.
