As head of the Baltimore Child Abuse Center, Adam Rosenberg brings together his passion for community development and his background in not for profit management and law to wage a battle against child sexual abuse. Mr. Rosenberg was the first male prosecutor in the Domestic Violence Unit of the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office, and later prosecuted hundreds of cases involving sex offenders, predators, child pornographers, and violent abusers as a member of the Sex Offense Unit. He became Executive Director of Baltimore Child Abuse Center in 2008, reinvigorating the 25 year old agency with renewed mission and purpose. In 2009, Mr. Rosenberg was appointed to the Governor’s State Council on Child Abuse and Neglect. He is Vice President of the Maryland Children’s Alliance, served on Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s transition committee, and is a graduate of the Greater Baltimore Committee’s 2010 class.

A graduate of Cornell University and the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Mr. Rosenberg frequently lectures, conducts audits, and runs workshops for youth serving institutions on recognizing, responding to, and the importance of reporting sexual child abuse as well as child advocacy center development, non-profit board development, and social networking.
