Larry C. Simmons, a West Baltimore native, is the program manager of ReCast Baltimore, an initiative through the Baltimore City Health Department funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. ReCast is driven by a community board, youth commission, and community coalition—made up of community members, community-based organizations, young people, faith communities, city agencies, funding partners, and resource providers. ReCast Baltimore is working to organize, empower, and restore a once thriving Central West Baltimore—Sandtown-Winchester, Druid Heights-Upton, and Penn North—by taking a public health lens and community-driven approach to addressing trauma and building capacity in small CBO’s, breaking down silos, organizing, providing funding resources and support services, and celebrating the resiliency in young people between the ages of 14 and 24, post Freddie Gray. With over 17 years of experience as a program manager, organizer, and community school coordinator with organizations such as, The Y of Central Maryland, Child First Authority, and Elev8 Baltimore, Larry has dedicated his career to the young people of Baltimore and believes that the future of our community depends on the success of our children.
