Support Our Work
Pro Bono Counseling Project clients are uninsured, with limited incomes from minimum wage jobs. Something terrible happened in their lives and they must find help to regain their balance and continue to contribute to their families and communities. When the Pro Bono Counseling Project recently received a $1,000 gift and calculated that it paid for nearly three months of telephone bills, simply stated, that gave 820 people access to mental health care who would not have received care by any other means.
Please consider giving a donation to support the work of these dedicated clinicians and their clients. In 2011, 1013 families and individuals throughout Maryland would not have received therapy without their generous gift.
Dear Friends & Volunteers-
We are encountering a time of fundamental change in the delivery of health care in Maryland. It would be wonderful to believe that the needs of all our citizens will be met; that veterans and their families, victims of violence, cancer patients and caregivers, and others in very vulnerable health and economic situations will find easy access to quality mental health care. Alas, history has proven that no one system fits all.
Just as at the Pro Bono Counseling Project’s beginning in 1991, we know that there must still be care available for those without the necessary resources to take advantage of new programs and policies. If anything, the need has become more critical than ever. The requests for PBCP services are growing exponentially, as is the need for the clinicians who will serve them. Our extraordinary and valued licensed clinicians who volunteer with PBCP are the lifeblood of the organization. It is through their exceptional generosity of time, care, healing, as well as the dignity with which it is given to all, that makes PBCP stand out as a shining national example of what can be done when a community really cares.
With grants from numerous organizations and foundations, generous support from all our PBCP friends, and the efforts of a talented and dedicated PBCP staff, thousands of men, women, children, and families in Maryland have received excellent professional care for over 21 years. We look forward to continuing that mission unabated; to providing clinicians with support and training, and to continuing to serve Maryland’s citizens with the best mental health care available. We thank all of you for your steadfast commitment in making that happen every day.
