Our Social Impact Businesses

Humanim currently runs five Baltimore-based social impact businesses in the culinary, construction, reuse and document imaging industries – all of which are committed to our mission of training and hiring individuals with barriers to employment.

Details Deconstruction

Details Deconstruction does what demolition can’t – create jobs and reduce environmental waste. A labor intensive, green alternative to demolition, Details adheres to a triple bottom line business model that considers social, environmental, and financial impact. Every Details project diverts salvageable materials from overflowing landfills, and creates jobs for skilled crew members who have faced barriers to employment.

Brick+Board

Brick + Board gives new life to reclaimed building materials, while harnessing the salvage industry toward meaningful social impact. Born as a sister company to Details Deconstruction, they salvage the materials taken from Details’ deconstruction projects, and process them for resale, while creating skilled, living-wage, green-collar jobs for Baltimoreans with barriers to employment.
