Restoring Inner City Hope, Inc.
is a non-profit organization founded in 2011. Our mission is to love, inspire, and empower youth and families throughout the city of baltimore.
In 2011 Michael Battle had an idea to have a prayer walk in Cherry HIll, the neighborhood he grew up in. The area had always been looked at in a negative light by those who knew nothing of the small community aside from that which they saw on the news or had heard from others. With the violence rate rising in the area Mr. Battle and a handful of friends create the Disciple Street Team that would over the course of 8 years evolve into the RICH - Restoring Inner City Hope team that would continue to focus on the residents of CHerry Hill but would provide a wealth or resources and opportunities for youth and young adults from across the city. RICH continues to hold their annual prayer walk but also offers haircuts and school supplies in the fall, hosts Reality Checks, supports other local outreach programs, and so much more.
