Caton Corners seeks to improve lives

On June 28, representatives from nine Southwest Baltimore businesses announced the expansion of a community partnership, Caton Corners, which was founded in 2004. Caton Corners will now include five local businesses to work together to improve the working and personal lives of the residents who live in the neighborhoods of Southwest Baltimore.

Caton Corners was founded by The Cardinal Gibbons School, Baltimore; Jenkins Senior Living Communities/Catholic Charities, Baltimore; St. Agnes Hospital, Baltimore; and The Seton Keough High School, Baltimore. The group will welcome Applied Coatings, Kibby’s Restaurant, Tri-Churches, University of Maryland Baltimore County-Shriver Center and Up to Date Laundry, Inc.

“As one of the largest employees in the area, we at St. Agnes have a stake in the well-being and economic growth of the community,” said Nancy Creighton, Director of Community Relations and Advocacy for St. Agnes. “We’re looking forward to working with these exceptional businesses to better the lives of those in our neighborhood.”

The Caton Corners partnership brings together stakeholders from the surrounding area to create a structure that will foster community development and improvement. The businesses hope to improve their area’s main artery by collaborating on community improvement initiatives ranging from education opportunities and workforce development to health care and housing.
