About Community Science
Community Science was founded in 1997 as a social enterprise that would use its expertise, skills, and profits to support equity and social justice. It was founded as a place where social change professionals can come together to use knowledge and build capacity to effectively promote justice.

Community Science In The Community
We are part of the Washington DC-Baltimore communities as well in other parts of the country where our team members reside. Community Science team members participate two Days of Service each year. We work together for the day in the same task or project for local organization. Our team has rehab a house, distributed clothing and furniture, voter registration and painting the interior of an historic dance hall as well as clearing and harvesting from a garden that would provide fresh vegetables to food banks.
We also provide free services to local organizations that promote our mission and can be professional development experiences for our team members. Our team members have provided evaluation and other consultation services to local community-based nonprofit organizations.
