In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PBCP has joined together with a group of nonprofits, grassroots leaders, and elected officials to form an effort among Baltimore City neighbors to proactively check on its senior citizens. Called the Baltimore Neighbors Network, the pilot program hopes to connect people in need of help with appropriate resources available to them. The Pro Bono Counseling Project is proud to be collaborating with the city, Baltimore Community Mediation Center, the Mental Health Association of Maryland, Coppin State University’s Social Work program and others during this time of crisis.

Since its founding in 1991, the Pro Bono Counseling Project (PBCP), a non-profit 501c(3) corporation, has helped over 30,000 individuals and families throughout Maryland connect with volunteer counselors and obtain the mental health care they could not otherwise afford. Presently, PBCP has over 800 volunteer clinicians all over the state of Maryland who give over 9,000 hours of their time each year.
