Southway and our employees support initiatives that have a real impact in our community.
Southway is a Baltimore-based construction manager with our office located in Locust Point.
At Southway, working with our hands is what we do. We take great pride in the work we perform and are humbled by the recognition we receive. But nothing compares with the time we spend together in service to our community.
It is said that donating money does less than donating time. Giving your time is a way to change your perception and create a memory for yourself and others that will last forever. We subscribe to this way of thinking – and lend our hands willingly.
We feel a great sense of pride serving the people and communities where we work. Our goal is to have a sustainable and transformational impact. As a company, we support corporate social responsibility through our Giving Committee, the Southway Builders Charitable Trust, and our participation in local partnership such as BLocal.
We are never surprised to learn that Southway team members support a variety of non-profit organizations through active volunteerism and board leadership roles.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead

Giving back not only impacts the people we strive to help, but it impacts us as well. We are equally as touched by the hearts and minds of those we help as they are by us. One major event we had was at the Baer School in Baltimore. This Baltimore City Public School has served… READ MORE
9.1% of the construction industry is made up of women. In high school, it is very unlikely for female students to be exposed to the construction world. Often, they are not made aware of the opportunities in the field and they stereotype it as a male dominated industry. WABC is looking to change that. Associated… READ MORE
Imagine being able to feed a child in need for a whole month. Better yet, do it; it only costs $25. Last Friday, a group of Southway employees volunteered at the Baltimore Hunger Project.
