The work of civil legal aid groups is instrumental in moving vulnerable people out of crisis. Each year, thousands of low-income Marylanders benefit from direct legal help and policy advocacy in housing, food, health care, protection from domestic violence and other issues of interest to funders. Come hear an overview of the civil legal services landscape: who does the work, who is served and why is it so difficult for Marylanders to get legal help when they need it. Join the discussion of how funders are using legal services to advance their grantmaking goals.
The begining of a new year provides opportunity to both look back, and look forward at our plans, goals, successes and challenges. Reflecting on the year gone by, 10 Core Milestones stand out and speak to the core mission of ABAG – the network for donors in Maryland – and the work and impact of every ABAG member. ABAG thrives on the energy and engagement of members and we thank you for making us part of your philanthropic efforts. We look forward to continuing this journey together throughout 2015 - Celeste Amato, ABAG President
