Big News! The Daily Record has named Humanim's Jeff Carroll and the DETAILS team as "Innovator of the Year."
DETAILS, a Humanim social enterprise, is a nonprofit deconstruction business with a social mission: creating jobs for people who, for many reasons, have faced difficulty getting hired. We train and hire men and women to take apart buildings - rather than demolishing them - and then we salvage the materials for resale, reuse or repurposing.
"When a strong social mission gives rise to innovative thinking and both are embraced by an extraordinary team, something good is bound to happen," Jeff says. "DETAILS is built on a mission of creating economic opportunity for Baltimore residents and communities, and we're proud that our innovative work is being recognized."
A special thanks to our great partners: Baltimore Housing, Baltimore Office of Sustainability, Abell Foundation, Goldseker Foundation, Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Wells Fargo, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the many community leaders who have helped us make DETAILS a success.

Create jobs and improve lives

Specifically, helping to remove blighted areas around railroad tracks to beautify Baltimore City. This new initiative of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will create jobs and improve the quality of life for Baltimore neighborhoods.
