Volunteer Opportunity: Project Homeless Connect September 26, 2012

The Colorado Lawyers Committee will participate once again in Project Homeless Connect,  a one-day event sponsored by the City of Denver that connects homeless individuals to services including: public benefits, medical care, housing and employment opportunities and legal assistance. Volunteer attorneys, paralegals and law students are needed (for 3-hour shifts) to provide legal information and referrals to homeless participants. Many volunteers also assist with the “Homeless Court” which is held as part of the event and allows individuals to resolve outstanding warrants for violations of Denver’s City Ordinance. The Colorado Lawyers Committee co-sponsors this effort with the Colorado Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel. Attorneys, paralegals and law students are invited to participate.
