Type of Activity
Horseshoe Baltimore supports the Baltimore community’s economic development by investing in workforce development, hiring locally, and working with local vendors.
We provide ongoing support to MOED’s Employment Connection Center, offering job seekers computer skills, interview preparedness, and other valuable career support. We have a dedicated Community Employment Coordinator who provides coaching to city residents interested in applying for jobs and connecting residents with the Employee Connection Center and other available programs.
In 2017, 62 percent of the casino’s 1,400 team members reside in the city of Baltimore. We hold recruitment events throughout Baltimore and on an ongoing basis.
Revitalizing the Southern Gateway
Horseshoe Baltimore is working to create a pedestrian-friendly corridor along Warner Street. To kick off development, we recently announced that Topgolf is opening a golf emporium which will open in 2020, which is estimated to attract 500,000 visitors a year, and employ 500 workers.
