Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc.
2012 Annual Report
BNI promotes justice in housing for all people in the state of Maryland through fair housing and tenant-landlord programs and public information activities.
BNI is one of the oldest and largest fair housing organizations in the nation. We continue to work for justice in housing, and remain committed to the belief that good neighbors come in all colors and abilities. On this, our 53rd Anniversary, we celebrate a proud history and are ready to accept the challenges of the work ahead. In the years that followed World War II, housing segregation was a fact of life in America. Segregation was widely accepted and was supported by mortgage lending, real estate practices, and restrictive neighborhood covenants. In many large cities, unscrupulous real estate speculators engaged in the practice known as “blockbusting”, a practice that played on the fears of white homeowners. This practice created “white -light” and allowed speculators to turn over whole neighborhoods by buying houses at bargain prices and re-selling them to black newcomers at a much larger pro-it. In the 1950s a group of enlightened city homeowners sought to enlist like-minded individuals, neighborhood organizations and the business community to encourage stable, integrated neighborhoods and discourage whites from abandoning the city. In March of 1959, Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc. (BNI) was incorporated by visionaries James Rouse, Ellsworth Rosen, Sidney Hollander, Jr., and Melvin Sykes. In the early years, the efforts of BNI and other fair housing organizations were largely based on moral persuasion. This changed when Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which prohibited housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, or national origin. Blockbusting was speci-ically outlawed, and fair housing choice became law. During the years that followed, BNI focused on enforcement of fair housing law. BNI’s -irst efforts at testing for housing discrimination were hampered until 1982, when a case known as Havens Realty Corp. v. Coleman gave legal standing to fair housing organizations and testers. Since then, BNI has -iled over ninety lawsuits charging housing discrimination and has won or favorably settled almost every one. BNI also devoted itself to the education of black and white communities about what was then referred to as “open housing” and to building bridges of cooperation with the real estate industry and government agencies. Through the years, BNI has handled thousands of housing discrimination complaints, many of which were successfully resolved through negotiation and others of which were referred to federal, state and local organizations for resolution. In 1970, BNI begin to provide counseling to tenants and landlords in Baltimore City, and in 1991, through a grant from the Maryland Legal Services Corporation, BNI was able to expand its services to the entire state of Maryland. During the past -iscal year, BNI hotline counselors have responded to 18,000 calls. Counselors assist callers with information regarding evictions, responsibility for maintenance, security deposits, proper notice to vacate, and a host of other tenant/landlord issues and questions. Because of the foreclosure crisis, inquiries on foreclosure prevention have greatly increased. In addition, BNI continues to publish its highly regarded tenant-landlord guides for Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Prince George's Counties as well as its statewide guide which also covers federal fair housing law. Although BNI has never wavered from its focus on racial justice in housing, our focus has expanded to seeking fair treatment for other groups, most notably persons with disabilities and families with children and the GLTB community. Today, BNI is -irm in its support of Source of Income legislation and fairness in housing for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals. More than ever we recognize the need to eradicate housing discrimination for all citizens by educating and supporting integrated communities, improving tenant/landlord relations, and advocating for persons with disabilities on accessibility issues. Financial support for BNI continues to come from memberships and United Way of Central Maryland, government grants, corporate and foundation gifts, community organizations and private contributions.

The President’s Report Every year brings new opportunities and challenges to BNI, and this year is no exception. As re-lected on page nine in this program, it’s been an active and exciting year. Our three year HUD grant of $1.1 million dollars is the largest HUD grant that BNI has ever received in its half century plus of existence. We are the only organization in Maryland to receive this Fair Housing Initiative Program grant. We have successfully settled court cases this year and we have expanded our Fair Housing operations to cover more of the state of Maryland. In the foreseeable future, we expect to provide services to the entire state, just as our Tenant-Landlord program has for years. BNI continues to make a difference throughout the state, as evidenced by the remarkable volume of calls that the Tenant-Landlord staff responds to each year and the number of new cases that the Fair Housing program brings to light. This would not be possible without the support of the entire BNI family—staff, board, volunteers, members, and funders. Together, we come closer to a state of housing equity for all Maryland citizens. After serving as BNI’s president for -ive years, my term comes to an end as of this Annual Meeting. I’ve learned much as president, and the most important thing I’ve learned is that Maryland still needs the services of BNI, even after more than a half century of working to guarantee justice in housing for all Maryland citizens. We’ve made a difference, yet discrimination persists. Now that we’ve found the resources to expand our services beyond the Baltimore region, we are learning how much we are needed throughout the state. And so we are making our Fair Housing presence known in counties some distance from Baltimore. In addition, our hotline counseling service continues to provide assistance to thousands of landlords and tenants statewide. I’ve had the privilege of working with a board of directors that proves its dedication to Fair Housing in many ways. I’ve worked with a -irst class staff that demonstrates dedication and expertise every day. And we have a -ine cadre of volunteers who willingly undergo rigorous training and regularly travel many miles to accomplish BNI’s mission. I also thank you, the BNI membership. You support BNI with your donations and by electing board members and of-icers, as you do at this Annual Meeting. And special thanks to our funders, both federal and local, without whom we could not operate. It’s been an honor to lead this distinguished organization and I thank you, the entire BNI family, for the opportunity to serve as president. Now I will continue to serve on the Board of Directors as Immediate Past President. I look forward to participating in BNI’s future as it continues to serve and to grow under the leadership of our new president. I wish the entire BNI family much success in the coming year.

Keynote Speaker Melody Taylor-Blancher Melody Taylor-Blancher is the Region 3 Director for the Mid Atlantic Of-ice of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. She serves as principal advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity in all matters relating to equal opportunity in housing and facilities, economic opportunity, civil rights, and nondiscrimination in the implementation of the programs of HUD. She is responsible for administering the Department’s programs and responsibilities in connection with equal opportunity and civil rights, including those under Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination Act and relevant Executive Orders. She also manages the education and outreach responsibilities within the Regional of-ice. Before relocating to Philadelphia, Melody worked as the principal advisor and manager to the Department’s National Fair Housing Training Academy at HUD Headquarters in Washington, DC. The Academy is the -irst and only federally funding fair housing civil rights training component nationwide. Melody contributed extensively to the development of fair housing, lending and leadership curricula created to train fair housing advocates and practitioners nationwide. In addition to her work with the academy Melody has served as the principal staff on a host of national projects including the award winning fair housing media campaign- “Accents” and “Do You Still Like Me” in collaboration with the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and the Ad Council. Melody’s contributions and commitment to fair housing span a period of 15 years. She has had the unique experience of working as a public servant and an advocate. Melody started her fair housing career with the National Fair Housing Alliance serving as the project manager on national insurance and lending initiatives which resulted in multimillion dollar settlements and investments in minority neighborhoods that were redlined and unable to obtain homeowners insurance. Melody continued her work with the Equal Rights Center where she had the opportunity to work on a host of civil rights projects, most notably her work with ABC’s 20/20 on a televised expose on consumer racism. Melody is also Senior Fellow of the Council for Excellence in Government, a nonpartisan non-pro-it entity founded to improve the performance of government at all levels through its leadership training and advocacy.
On October 21, 2011, beloved friend, mentor, advocate and BNI board member, Dr. Dickens War-ield died. Known to all as “Dickens,” Dr. War-ield dedicated much of her life to working for and with BNI to eradicate housing discrimination in Maryland. Well into her eighties, Dickens could easily have played the role of the little old lady on any stage, but that image crumbled at the feet of her intellect, energy and stamina. During her tenure at BNI, Dickens consistently worked and volunteered in every capacity imaginable. At BNI she was a woman of sub-
stance who’d found her calling in the work of ending housing discrimination. BNI owes so much to Dickens War-ield. In large measure it is because of her diligent research, publications and tireless efforts that BNI is known for its work throughout the state. It was under her guidance that BNI fair housing staff learned how to best carryout the BNI mission. Through her passing BNI has lost a great friend and an immeasurable amount of institutional knowledge—both losses that can never be recovered.
To honor the memory of Dr. Dickens War-ield, the BNI fair housing award has been renamed. The new name is The BNI Dickens War-ield Fair Housing Award. The 2012 award will be given to Christopher Brown, of Brown Goldstein and Levy for his years of support in successfully moving BNI litigation forward.

Community Education & Outreach Program BNI’s Community Education & Outreach Program (CEOP) continues to support both the BNI Fair Housing and Tenant-Landlord Programs by providing educational outreach opportunities for the community to learn about BNI’s work. In 2012, BNI’s CEOP played a critical role in expanding the diversity of volunteer testers. In partnership with Volunteer Maryland, BNI increased its outreach in new counties and to organizations that in previous years had not been reached. The CEOP has conducted over 30 information and volunteer training workshops. It has also disseminated more than 8,000 pieces of literature via education outreach opportunities which included, but were not limited to, community associations, tenant councils, parent groups, universities, welfare to work programs, faith-based organizations, disability resource centers, landlord associations and government agencies providing housing services. BNI served approximately 5,700 Marylanders through the distribution of BNI informational materials, the BNI newsletter Insights, and Fair Housing and Tenant-Landlord trainings and presentations. These education and outreach activities have proven to be excellent opportunities to educate the community about BNI’s mission to end housing discrimination, bolster the work of other Maryland housing organizations, and provide opportunities for forging collaboration and partnerships.
Fair Housing Program BNI’s comprehensive Fair Housing Program works to eradicate discriminatory housing throughout the state of Maryland by: testing for discriminatory housing practices, promoting legislative action to remove barriers of housing discrimination, assisting disabled citizens with Reasonable Accommodation and Reasonable Modi-ication requests, providing fair housing training to public and private community groups, and providing information and counseling on federal, state, and local Fair Housing law to interested citizens. For this reporting period, the fair housing program has seen a 300% increase in its testing of Maryland properties for housing discrimination. Current research from state census data revealed a need for BNI to broaden its scope beyond Baltimore City and surrounding localities. Changing demographics, new housing developments, and review of Analyses of Impediments (AI) informed BNI’s decision to expand testing into targeted jurisdictions. Research results were alarming and served as the foundation for shaping the new direction of BNI’s Fair Housing Program. AI reports revealed what BNI has known for many years -- there remains a prevalence of segregation in Maryland. The Fair Housing Program has expanded testing to the Eastern Shore, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Cecil, and Prince George’s counties. The program has successfully diversi-ied its pool of testers. Extensive volunteer recruitment in the areas of disabilities, religion, and ethnicity and national origin has shown promising results. Expanding diversity in the BNI volunteer pool allows BNI to uncover housing discrimination and ensure the rights of Maryland’s protected classes.
Litigation BNI Joins in Administrative Complaint – BNI recently joined the Baltimore County Branch of the NAACP and four individuals in an administrative complaint against Baltimore County. The suit alleged that the County failed to af-irmatively further fair housing. The complaint was -iled Page 9
with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and alleges that the County has used the funds to “perpetuate rather than alleviate the distinct racial divide in the County”, which causes an adverse impact on African Americans, families with children and individuals with disabilities. The complainants are represented by attorneys from Public Justice Center, Legal Aid Bureau, Homeless Persons Representation Project, ACLU and Maryland Disability Law Center. BNI Sues Cecil County Complex for Racial Bias – Pending – BNI -iled a housing discrimination suit in Cecil County alleging that the Alta Chesapeake Ridge Apartments engaged in patterns and practices of housing discrimination based on race. In 2011, BNI’s fair housing department conducted paired tests using Caucasian and African American testers. On two separate occasions, the African American testers were told that only a few vacancies were available, when in fact there were multiple vacancies provided to the white testers on the very same day. In the complaint, BNI alleges that Alta Chesapeake intentionally gave the African-American testers false information and incorrectly informed them that fewer housing opportunities existed…in order to discourage African Americans from living at the apartment complex. Thanks to funding from HUD, BNI is now able to expand its testing efforts in more remote regions within the state. It is BNI’s goal to put an end to discriminatory housing practices that have been outlawed for nearly half a century.
Tenant-Landlord Hotline Counseling Program The Tenant-Landlord Program provides free information about the laws governing tenant/ landlord relationships in Maryland. The BNI hotline provides service to the entire state of Maryland with the exception of part of Montgomery County. Hotline counselors are extensively trained and dispense information under the supervision of attorney consultant Marc Baer of the law -irm Waldman, Grossfeld, Appel, and Baer. Mr. Baer provides consultation for hard-to answer calls and inquiries, and provides training to update staff on tenant-landlord law. For -iscal year 2011-2012 the hotline has given information to 18,484 callers. The majority of calls are related to failure to pay rent, proper notice to vacate, repairs (rent escrow), security deposits, and a house guest or a squatter who refuses to leave. BNI continues to participate in the Rental Housing Coalition (RHC) and the Renters and Foreclosure Workgroup. RHC is a statewide group of advocates, allies and tenants who seek to improve rental housing in the state of Maryland through law, policy and education. Through the work of RHC, BNI has supported legislation that strengthens the state law for renters in properties under foreclosure and the state law for renters affected by a landlord’s retaliatory actions. In continuing to support legislation that will improve relationships between tenants and landlords, this year BNI supported SB 765: Public Utilities – Consumer Relations – Tenant Payment of Landlord Utility Bills. The goal of the legislation is to allow tenants to pay their utility bill (that had been cut off due to the landlord’s nonpayment) and deduct the payment from their rent. If signed by the governor, the bill SB 765: Public Service Commission – Study on Tenant Payment of Landlord Utility Bills will go into effect June 1, 2012 and requires the public service commission to organize a workgroup that will study and make recommendations for -inding a mechanism that addresses tenants affected by a landlord’s default in utility payments.

Major HUD Grant Awarded to BNI In 2011, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $1.1 million dollars in funding to Baltimore Neighborhoods Inc. BNI is the only fair housing organization in the state to receive HUD Fair Housing Initiative Program (FHIP) funding. To date this is the largest grant awarded to BNI from HUD. Receipt of the award serves as a testament to the work of BNI’s Fair Housing Program and its continued commitment to eradicate discriminatory housing practices. In addition to providing support for BNI’s work to “af-irmatively further” fair housing, FHIP funding will be used for staff training, developing new partnerships, strengthening historical alliances and identifying best industry practices.
Translation Project Underway For the past two years BNI has been working to translate its informational materials into other languages. Despite several challenges to the process, we are pleased to announce that two signi-icant BNI publications are now available to in both Spanish and Mandarin. They are The Tenant Intro Packet and The Landlord Intro Packet. Special thanks to Dr. Kerry Ose, BNI’s Volunteer Maryland Coordinator. Dr. Ose had the good fortune to enlist two volunteer translators who welcomed the opportunity to provide their time and services to BNI. On May 23, 2012, Ms. Leslie Kornreich and Mr. Frank Hom will be honored for their translation work at BNI’s 2012 Annual Meeting. The BNI Board and staff extend heartfelt and sincere thanks to them for their contributions. The process of translating BNI informational materials is not complete. There is much more to be done. The BNI staff invites anyone interested in assisting with the translation to please contact Kerry Ose at 410-243-4468.
Highlights BNI’s Power Breakfast was held on October 18, 2011 at the Pikesville Hilton Hotel in Pikesville, Maryland. The fundraising event was a remarkable morning of celebration and re-lection on the history and ongoing -ight for fair housing in America. The 2011 Power Breakfast was historically signi-icant in that it coincided with the re-dedication of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial. United States Congressman John Lewis was honored as the Beacon of Light Lifetime Award recipient. Also honored was Mr. Bernard Kleina. Mr. Kleina is a renowned national leader in fair housing and former executive director of the Hope Fair Housing Center in Chicago, Illinois. In addition, he is a highly regarded social justice photographer.
