New grant supports social workers at Legal Aid

The Hoffberger Foundation of Baltimore awarded Maryland Legal Aid a $25,000 grant to support the salary of a social work supervisor in the Baltimore office. The supervisor oversees the work of four graduate social work students who work at Legal Aid 14 hours a week (over 30 weeks). The supervisor (a professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work) and the four grad students support the entire Baltimore City general practice, including (and especially) at intake with assistance with home visits, photography of housing conditions, application assistance of all sorts, landlord negotiation, medical appointment and case worker coverage, and much more.
