The Pro Bono Counseling Project is proud to announce that our Standards for Excellence accreditation through Maryland Nonprofits was approved for renewal!  The application process involves thorough review and documentation of our processes and policies, and the accreditation shows that PBCP demonstrates excellence in nonprofit management and ethical accountability and meets the highest standards in fulfilling its obligations to those who benefit from its programs, to contributors, and to the public.


Maryland Cancer Survivorship Resource is Now Available

The Pro Bono Counseling Project is a proud member of the Maryland Cancer Collaborative through the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.  Bailey T.

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.
