About the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives

The Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives’ mission is to serve as a coordinating office for the governor that connects Marylanders to economic, volunteer, and human service opportunities through government, business, and nonprofit partners. To address that core mission, the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives outreach efforts encompass the state’s geographic areas, ethnic groups, and faith communities.

The Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives also houses the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism and Volunteer Maryland, and oversees the Banneker-Douglass Museum, community affairs and engagement within the executive branch of Maryland government, faith-based outreach, and the governor’s ethnic and cultural commissions.
