TouchPoint Empowerment Center
A Historic Project in the Making
The former Target store at Mondawmin Mall will be reimagined and given new life as the TouchPoint Empowerment Center. This is made possible by the collective efforts of various community organizations and founders of TouchPoint Baltimore, Whiting-Turner Contracting Company president and chief executive officer Tim Regan, who individually purchased the vacant building for this purpose and Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Exelon, Calvin Butler.
Meant to revitalize the eight West Baltimore neighborhoods that comprise the Mondawmin community, TouchPoint Baltimore currently houses two local nonprofits in Mondawmin Mall, their temporary home.
Those nonprofits include Thread, which coaches and supports high-need high school students, and Baltimore Corps, which works to advance social innovation in the city. These and other community and business organizations will ultimately move to the new space once construction is complete.
TouchPoint is working in coordination with a host of community partners to best assess the needs of the surrounding community. The space could offer retail space for entrepreneurs and spaces for tutoring, mentoring and job training programs courtesy of the nearby Center for Urban Families, and potentially a catering/events area and teaching kitchen for food business careers.
Our Community Partners
This endeavor would not be possible without the support, input and enthusiasm from the community, our partners, in this important effort. Our goal is to create a thriving, diverse hub that serves the needs of the Greater Mondawmin community and beyond.
We look forward to moving this effort forward with the guidance and teamwork from our valuable partners!
