Mary lends her time and legal prowess at Face to Face in Germantown, an organization dedicated to lifting Germantown residents beyond crushing poverty.  From its 1985 beginnings as a soup  kitchen, Face to Face has grown to include a nurse managed Health Center, a Social Services Center, a Legal Center, a Neighborhood Arts Studio and a Summer Camp program.  In addition, it provides a  restaurant-style dining room where folks can socialize over a cup of coffee while they wait for a meal.

At Face to Face, Mary puts her top-notch legal skills to work helping guests with housing, employment, financial, and healthcare litigation offering dignity, compassion, and a sense of community to  residents.

Congratulations, Mary.  Well done.
