HJM is committed to giving back to the community. Since its establishment, HJM has developed a strong focus on charitable efforts that support the safety and housing of women and children in Baltimore City.
Since 2009, HJM has represented The House of Ruth, a non-profit dedicated to providing shelter and supportive services for women struggling with domestic violence. HJM proudly provides lobbying services and government relations support on a pro-bono basis for this organization, in order to advance its important mission. Through his advocacy, Sean Malone has aided in the passage of legislation to create an independent designation of domestically-related crimes and helped to secure much-needed funding for the organization through an increase in marriage license fees.
HJM also represents The Family Tree, a charitable organization providing resources to parents and children in order to reduce child abuse. The Family Tree’s “Enough Abuse” Campaign has led the charge on child sexual abuse prevention in Maryland through its extensive community education program.
In addition, HJM has worked closely on The Journey Home, Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s plan to transition homeless citizens to homeownership. As the 2012 Co-Chair of The Journey Home’s Benefit Committee, Lisa Harris Jones dedicated substantial time and resources to raise funds and awareness for this critical campaign.
In 2012, Ms. Jones was recognized as a Special Leader by the YWCA Greater Baltimore, an organization defined by its deep dedication to the advancement of women and children.
When considering opportunities for charitable giving, HJM places an emphasis on programs that support the safety and housing of women and children in Baltimore City.
