Strength to Love II is a community based program in west Baltimore’s Sandtown- Winchester neighborhood that uses a 1.5 acre farm to offer employment to citizens returning to the community from incarceration. The farm also helps to address the food apartheid issue in and surrounding our neighborhood. As a program of the nonprofit Intersection of Change, we follow a mission statement that seeks to enrich the economic, social and spiritual lives of those dealing with poverty related issues in our community.
