Abel Communications is pleased to announce that Baltimore non-profit Civic Works has selected the firm to lead a comprehensive public relations and marketing program.
Founded in 1993, Civic Works is Baltimore’s urban service corps and an AmeriCorps program. The mission of the organization is to strengthen Baltimore’s communities through education, skills development, and community service. Following a competitive review, the organization chose Abel due to the firm’s track record in delivering successful campaigns locally, regionally and nationally.
“We are excited to work with a dynamic firm like Abel Communications that understands our mission and has already brought fresh ideas to our team,” said Dana Stein, Executive Director of Civic Works. “We are looking forward to increasing awareness about the incredible impact of Civic Works programs throughout the Baltimore community.”

Every day, Civic Works is out in the community improving lives by providing job training and career readiness programs and creating a greener, healthier, and better Baltimore. We can’t wait to spread the word.”
Through Civic Works, AmeriCorps members tutor and mentor students, create community parks and gardens, help homeowners conserve energy, grow food for low-income residents, rehabilitate abandoned houses, involve families in Baltimore City schools, make homes safer for older adults, and recruit volunteers. Civic Works also trains Baltimore residents for employment in the healthcare and green job industries.
With headquarters in Baltimore’s Hampden neighborhood, Abel Communications has seen rapid growth in the last several years, more than tripling in size. The firm works with many established local brands including STX, Medifast, Force 3, CARCHEX and the Baltimore office of CohnReznick.
