Nonprofits Call For Help For Poor, Mentally Ill

Nonprofits Call For Help For Poor, Mentally Ill

Printer-friendly version

In an interview on Sunday’s Maryland’s News This Week, Heather Iliff, President and CEO of Maryland Nonprofits, said that now that the state has a surplus, programs that did not see funding increases, or have funding cut during the O’Malley Administration should have funding restored.  She is particularly concerned about the low salaries mental health counselors and workers receive, creating high turnover.  She says nonprofit organizations have struggled to provide services with limited resources.

This past Monday Maryland Nonprofits issued its “State of the State” report.  Iliff said while Maryland is among the wealthiest states in the nation, there are large pockets of poverty in Baltimore City, parts of Western Maryland and the Lower Eastern Shore.
