Outreach, Education and Resources
Although our main objective is to provide free civil legal services, we take a holistic approach to serving our clients and provide non-legal advice, education and referral to services and supports available in the community in order to provide long-term solutions. We often partner with other community organizations to provide training and education both to our respective staff(s) and the community at large.
We provide and participate in workshops, trainings and seminars throughout the seven counties to build awareness and provide services. We often attend in-person fairs and information sessions to share knowledge and materials. And we conduct outreach in several forms throughout the community.
If you are a community partner, library, school, nursing home or other local organization who would like information on our services or to schedule someone to speak to your staff/clients, please contact us directly at your local office
