Introducing the new CAP Director, Marla Friedman!
I am the new Maryland Client Assistance Program Director.
I live in Baltimore with my husband and four children.
I grew up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and at the age of 14 I went away from home to go to high school in Silver Spring. I obtained my BS degree in Deaf Studies from Towson University and earned an MS degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction from McDaniel College.
For over 20 years I worked for VSP, a workforce development arm of Sinai Hospital, where I held several positions over the years, ending as the Vocational Services Manager.
I have worked and led teams to guide individuals of all ages and backgrounds to determine and support their vocational needs. As a Sinai employee, I was a member of the LifeBridge Health’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Council, which I co-chaired for three of the years. Since 2020, I have been a board member of the Levindale Auxiliary, Inc., a group of volunteers that help to provide extras for the residents and patients of Levindale. I am currently in my second year as the president of the Levindale Auxiliary board.
What is most important to know about me is that I have worked to support hundreds of individuals over the years, and I am here to support many more. I am honored and excited to be in this role. Please know that my door is always opened. Reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
