CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield invests in West Baltimore as tenant in The Village at Mondawmin
On January 23 CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst), one of the country’s largest not-for-profit healthcare organizations, announced plans to lease approximately 20,000 square feet of space at The Village at Mondawmin at Mondawmin Mall. The move is designed to double down on their investment in West Baltimore and workforce development initiatives.
CareFirst will utilize its space to host workforce development training and expand the wraparound support services available to reduce barriers to gainful employment, as well as for employee workspace and community engagement initiatives focused on expanding opportunities for city residents. The first cohort of their West Baltimore Workforce Development Program, a groundbreaking effort focused on creating career opportunities in West Baltimore in partnership with Coppin State University and Center for Urban Families, just graduated last month launching graduates into careers in community health, sales and more.
