The Caroline Center in East Baltimore received a $75,000 grant from the Baltimore Integration Partnership that will allow the School Sisters of Notre Dame charity to expand its current services to more underserved women.
“The award to the Caroline Center provides a strong vehicle to connect area residents with comprehensive training in medical fields, better positioning them for employment opportunities in Baltimore’s robust health care sector,” said Kurt Sommer, Baltimore Integration Partnership director, in an Aug. 8 statement.
Caroline Center provides health care education, work and life-skills training, and a GED program to prepare low-income women for careers as certified nursing assistants, geriatric nursing assistants and pharmaceutical technicians. The center has served more than 2,000 women since it was founded in 1996.
The Baltimore Integration Partnership unites workforce development and capital investment to benefit Baltimore City residents.
