About Project Pneuma
Project Pneuma is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the heart of downtown Baltimore. Founder and Executive Director, Damion Cooper, birthed Project Pneuma in 2014 after a near-death experience of being shot an inch above the heart at point-blank range. He began a healing journey of his own to teach lessons of forgiveness, self-control, discipline and redemption via mentorship. While mentoring a young man in prison during his years in Seminary, he discovered that his mentee was the assailant who shot him years earlier. The mission at Project Pneuma is to “Breathe New Life” holistically into the young men we serve by challenging them intellectually, strengthening them physically, nurturing them emotionally and uplifting them spiritually. We strive to teach our young men the art of forgiveness, self-control and discipline while giving them exposure to a new world of endless possibilities.
