As we celebrate 25 years of service, we thank you for your support of the Pro Bono Counseling Project and mental health care access in Maryland.  To express our gratitude, we honor your generosity with a video tribute sharing the impact of the Pro Bono Counseling Project and your compassion on the lives of those in need in Maryland.

The Pro Bono Counseling Project Names New Executive Director

Amy Greensfelder, MSW, has been named the new Executive Director of the Pro Bono Counseling Project.  She succeeds founding Executive Director Barbara Anderson, who retired after 26 years of service to the organization.

Amy recently completed her MSW at the University of Maryland School of Social Work.  She was a returning student after working extensively in refugee and immigration services for a number of organizations in Maryland and North Carolina.  Amy created and managed a national model of refugee mental health services for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and assisted other states with creating similar programs.

“Although we were saddened when we learned of Barbara’s decision to retire, she participated in the selection of her successor and we anticipate the transition will be seamless,” states Pro Bono Counseling Project Board President Ardena N. Githara.  “Our priority remains to provide quality healthcare to those Marylanders in need.”

“I believe in and I am committed to upholding the mission, vision and values of the Pro Bono Counseling Project,” states Amy Greensfelder.  “I look forward to working with our clients, clinicians and organization partners.”
