The Project

Maureen proposed a partnership between Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, a non-profit legal aid organization, and the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The partnership linked attorneys with health care professionals and teachers to allow them to band together to advocate for their patients who needed services and to provide educational materials and training for the families of children who have disabilities.

What’s Next
