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, housing, and education 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 probono 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.
HJM also represents The Family Tree, a charitable organization which is the lead entity in Maryland in preventing child abuse. The Family Tree connects caring communities and builds strong families to improve society for generations. As the Maryland chapter of Parents Anonymous ®, Prevent Child Abuse America and the National Exchange Club, The Family Tree nurtures hope where there may be none and gives it room to grow and flourish.
