Linda B. Stone, MS  Memorial Fund


Linda Stone, MS was a thoughtful member of our Board of Directors who died on March 11, 2013 as a result of a brief illness.  A licensed marriage and family therapist, Linda recently closed her private practice to devote her warmth, practicality and energy to the Pro Bono Counseling Project and other services to help families.  In her honor and memory, we and her family ask you to make a generous donation to help continue her best efforts to assure access to mental health care.
