As President of the Greater Mondawmin Coordinating Council since 2012, Jacqueline (Jackie) Caldwell is the Godmother of Mondawmin — righting wrongs, fighting crime, improving housing, raising money, boosting spirits and attending meeting after meeting with elected officials to make sure Mondawmin is, in her words, “at the table and not on the menu.” That’s in her spare time. In her day job at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, she dispenses grant money to organizations central to the foundation’s mission.
