"Harford County Bar Foundation supports individuals and families in need of guidance through free-advice clinics, one-day workshops, and direct representation. We have had a record number of applicants for our services this year and our goal for 2018 is to grow our capabilities to meet this increased need," explained Jennifer L. Vido, executive director. "We collaborate with nonprofits in the community on a variety of issues including abuse, custody, homelessness, bankruptcy, employment, individual rights, expungement, and end-of-life decisions. The funds raised by the Kentucky Derby party are vital to our ability to serve those in the greatest need."
