Impact Thesis

UTD is a long-standing business in Baltimore City paying above-market wages and benefits to its employees. The company also supported critical medical cleaning services during the COVID-19 pandemic, driving positive outcomes and safer care delivery for patients. The company has a very diverse base of ~235 FTEs, as well as 150+ part-time employees (primarily Baltimore City residents) and is a significant driver of sustainable jobs within distressed communities such as Poppleton (UTD headquarters), which has a 20% unemployment rate.
