Last week, we celebrated Pro Bono Week, honoring all of the volunteers who stretch LAF’s capacity to serve even more of the most vulnerable people in our community.
From our in-house AmeriCorps VISTAs and pro bono counsel, like Peter Monahan, whose story you can read in this month’s eNewsletter, to the Pro Bono Panel of attorneys and experts who take cases whenever we ask, to the teams from firms and corporations who staff our monthly clinics in the community, volunteers make our world go round. The attorneys at DLA Piper and Discover Financial Services recently received a windfall of praise and media attention for their dedication to the Woodlawn Clinic.
As always, on behalf of the staff and volunteers, the Board and YPB, and all the clients and communities we serve here at LAF, thank you for your continued support of our work. Read more about it in this month’s eNewsletter. When you invest your time or money in LAF, you are investing in making lasting change in the lives of people living in poverty across Chicagoland. Thank you.
