Call for Change Campaign
Day of Service Event - October 30, 2015
The Volunteer Legal Services Program (VLSP) at Community Legal Aid secures justice and changes the lives of low-income members in our community, but we cannot fulfill our mission without your help. There is a huge need for legal services. Research shows that 40% of low income households will face at least one legal issue this year. To meet this great need, VLSP is hosting a Pro Bono HelpLine event on October 30th in conjunction with the American Bar Association and the Ohio State Bar Association's call for a Day of Service. You are invited to help change a life by offering legal advice over the phone. No "homework" required, simply document case notes and VLSP will do the rest. There are two ways to get involved.
