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.
Congratulations to the Pro Bono Counseling Project’s Executive Director, Barbara Anderson, for being accepted into Leadership Maryland. Leadership Maryland, an independent statewide leadership program to develop informed senior-level leaders, was created in 1992 to cultivate the interest, the statewide knowledge and the leadership capacities of Maryland’s leaders. Fifty accomplished and diverse leaders are selected for the program annually by their peers. They represent businesses, education, government, nonprofits and labor unions. The goal of Leadership Maryland is to ensure that each class includes diversity in ethnicity, age, gender, industry, and geography. It is this diversity of opinions and perspectives that makes the program meaningful and rewarding. Barbara is looking forward to this exceptional opportunity to promote the Pro Bono Counseling Project with some of the top leaders in Maryland.
LCPC of Maryland Partnering for Recruitment
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors of Maryland (LCPCM), the statewide professional association for LCPC’s, has partnered with the Pro Bono Counseling Project to help with recruitment of volunteer clinicians for the PBCP. In addition, if you are interested in joining LCPCM, please see their website at www.lcpcm.org. We thank the association’s Executive Director, Courtenay Culp, LCPC for assisting in this effort and coordinating the promotion of our organization through their website and other communications with their members.

With over 600 active clients, the Pro Bono Counseling project greatly appreciates these efforts to help recruit additional clinicians during this high volume period. We really need additional clinicians so that we may maintain our policy of never having a waiting list and “many hands make light work”.
