Maryland New Directions cares about job seekers before, during, and even after their search for employment. From making sure clients have professional interview attire to checking in on past program participants in their new positions (and often seeing them promoted!), MND is truly an organization that wants to see their clients succeed. After attending one of MND's signature events, Connections Friday, I understood how active this organization is in generating employment opportunities- and making sure their clients are prepared to meet those opportunities. Maryland New Directions is shaping the future of Baltimore City by connecting city residents with meaningful employment, and I am proud to give to this organization.

We decided to give to MND after living in Baltimore for roughly 8 years. We love this city but know it has a lot of problems. The staff at MND are truly impressive, always going the extra mile for the clients. The clients are committed to the program and are so thankful to get help. We know life can be tough if you don't have a job, and we are just so glad MND is there to offer hope and solutions to those who need it the most. Solving the jobs, poverty, and economic issues in this country starts at a local level, and MND is the best organization to make an impact.

I have had the privilege of working with MND several times as a funder over the past 12 years. Their outreach, job training, and especially their ability to focus deeply on the needs of each individual client have been impressive. The program has grown in depth every year. Congratulations to MND for all the lives you have changed and promise you bring to the future of so many.

I have been a proud supporter for Maryland New Directions for many years. Through the years, MND has proved to be a great resource and member of Baltimore community. From the countless persons I know who have their lives changed by the effort of MND's staff, I have the highest admiration and praise to MND. I would recommend anyone to help MND in anyway they can. This is a great organization that can do great things to the community.
