Adam Rosenberg

Baltimore Child Abuse Center
Executive Director
Baltimore, MD
As head of Baltimore Child Abuse Center, Adam Rosenberg brings together his passion for community development and his background in not for profit management and law to help institutions protect children from abuse and trauma. He has become one of this nation's authorities on mandatory reporting laws and original practices for children’s advocacy centers.

A graduate of Cornell University and the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Mr. Rosenberg prosecuted hundreds of domestic abusers, sex offenders, and child predators for the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office. Later, as a Vice President at The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore he led the community’s leadership development strategies. In 2008, Mr. Rosenberg became BCAC’s Executive Director, reinvigorating the nationally accredited center with renewed mission and purpose, and has since increased program offerings and revenues by 330%. Mr. Rosenberg has had appointments on the Governor’s State Councils for Child Abuse and Neglect and Family Violence, state task forces on child abuse, and mayoral transition teams. He is a member of the board of National Children’s Alliance and Maryland Children’s Alliance, Vice President at Temple Oheb Shalom in Baltimore, and a member of the URJ Camp Harlam Council.

Mr. Rosenberg frequently testifies before elected officials, lectures at Universities, and provides comments to media. With their innovative Blueprint for Child Protection, BCAC and Mr. Rosenberg have reshaped how youth serving institutions recognize and respond to abuse and trauma. Mr. Rosenberg consults nationally with organizations and advocacy groups on issues of child protection, board development and social networking.

Most importantly, Mr. Rosenberg spent 13 summers at URJ Camp Harlam – from camper to counselor to unit head – and his twin daughters are about to start their seventh summer at Harlam. Mr. Rosenberg was a General for the Red Team in 1989 and Captain Color War in 1994. He still has his shirts and songsheets.
