The Pro Bono Counseling Project aims to ensure that Marylanders with limited resources who seek mental health care obtain free access to volunteer licensed mental health professionals and other necessary supportive services.
In the past 25 years, PBCP has linked more than 30,000 uninsured low income individuals and families to more than 1,800 licensed therapists. After noticing a recent dramatic increase in the number of at-risk Baltimore County and City Latina women experiencing domestic violence, abuse, family dysfunction, grief and loss, PBCP developed Terapias para Familias. This innovative program reaches out to Latina women, and matches them with Spanish-speaking therapists familiar with Latina culture and services in their communities.
The Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle grant helped PBCP’s Terapias para Familias program serve more women.
