Strong City sponsors 30 VISTA projects at nonprofit, government, and community organizations throughout Baltimore City and Maryland.

Strong City will provide support to The Pro Bono Counseling Project and the VISTA member throughout the year, including recruitment, training, resources, and professional development opportunities, and meetings. The Pro Bono Counseling Project (PBCP) ensures that Maryland families and individuals with limited resources in need of mental health care are linked with licensed mental health professionals who provide care on a volunteer basis at no cost. PBCP, a non-profit 501c (3) corporation which began in 1991, supports the volunteer efforts of participating clinicians, by distributing those cases that could not be served by any other means, and collecting and reporting data. Since 1991, more than 30,167 uninsured, low income families and individuals throughout Maryland were linked with 1,879 licensed and insured therapists who donated in excess of 111,000 hours for their care. The equivalent value of this donation exceeds $10.1 million. Therapists donate their livelihood so that these families and individuals can have access to mental health care.
