In Memory of Frances Forstenzer, BCD, LCSW-C

The Pro Bono Counseling Project is saddened to share that Frances Forstenzer passed away on Thursday, December 72017.  Mrs. Forstenzer was a former board member of the Pro Bono Counseling Project and was the first volunteer counselor to join in 1991, inspiring many others to participate as well. As a Pro Bono Counseling volunteer, Ms. Forstenzer accepted over 60 referrals, and supervised graduate students. She was recently honored in Pro Bono Counseling’s 25th year as a clinician who had volunteered for 25 years. Clients described Mrs. Forstenzer as a “not just a counselor but also a teacher” and “a big factor in [my child’s] healing.” Her caring spirit will be missed. Her obituary can be read here:
