Maryland New Directions, Inc.
April 10, 2013

Why I Serve Maryland New Directions: Four years ago, I was invited by MND’s founder to volunteer my real estate expertise in relocating MND to larger and more functional offices to accommodate their growing Career Focus program. In the course of that six month project, I became a committed supporter of the transformative work that I personally saw the MND staff, volunteers and the program participants achieve together. I joined the Board of Directors three years ago and regularly engage with Career Focus graduates during their mock interviews. Seeing the determination and confidence of the graduates keeps me energized to carry the MND story to prospective donors and employers throughout the Baltimore area in my role as head of the Development Committee.

As I start my fourth year on MND’s board, here’s what keeps me energized, involved and always looking for ways to do more: 1) our clients; 2) our staff & volunteers; and 3) our “home grown” Executive Director.

At our recent 39th anniversary celebration, one of this year’s crop of client’s, Johnny DeQuair spoke eloquently about his experience under MND’s guidance to persevere through difficult personal issues & unemployment, discover his passion and create a new & successful future. I see these client successes year after year after year and know that MND’s signature “Career Focus” program really works and is making a difference in the lives of the clients we serve.

Our staff and volunteers believe in MND’s mission. Their belief, their pride for their work with others, their caring and their commitment – all shine brightly in the life & career transitions they facilitate daily.

Nurtured by MND’s founder’s, ED, Grace Lee has grown and emerged with the vision, the passion, the “chutzpah” and the leadership to drive MND’s continuing success. It is her strength of character that guides MND in every way.
