Legg Mason Inc. is providing $1 million to underwrite the next four years of programming and services at Living Classrooms Foundation's POWER House Community Center in East Baltimore.

POWER House, which stands for "providing opportunities to work, expand, and rise," has provided out-of-school programming to children and teenagers since 2012. The programs include academic support and college readiness, financial literacy classes for adults, GED prep classes and job training courses.

The center is located in the old firehouse at 317 S. Caroline Street in the Perkins Homes public housing project, just over a half mile away from Legg Mason's Harbor East headquarters.

CEO Joseph A. Sullivan said the asset manager decided to make the $1 million commitment because it sees the East Baltimore neighborhood as an extension of its own work community. In addition to the money, Legg Mason employees will spend at least 2,000 hours volunteering and mentoring the children.
