Lawyers Club President 2013-2014
Leadership Through Grantmaking, Service and Advocacy
During this holiday season, it is fitting to highlight the time, talent and treasure generously given by Lawyers Club members this past year. It should give all of us great pride in what we have done – and continue to do – to impact our community through our dollars, service and advocacy skills as attorneys. But this “year in review” also underscores the importance of our vigilance and efforts moving forward.
The Lawyers Club Fund for Justice – Impactful Grantmaking to Organizations Serving At-Risk Women, Youth and Children
The Lawyers Club Fund for Justice was established in 1997 to fill a void in charitable giving directed to organizations aligned with Lawyers Club’s mission. In 2013, the Fund for Justice will grant a total of $27,500 to eight local organizations. The missions of our grantees vary, but each serves the fundamental purpose of advancing Lawyers Club’s mission and serving vulnerable women, youth and children in San Diego county.
Among our funded programs are a volunteer-driven reading program for delinquent girls trying to get back on track through the Juvenile Court Book Club – Girls Rehab program; a “word art” and poetry project through Street of Dreams, serving teenage mothers at risk of homelessness or incarceration and who need arts credit to graduate from high school and qualify to enroll in college; New Entra Casa’s residential counseling and recovery program for women overcoming substance abuse; and, the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s (SDVLP) domestic violence restraining orders clinic, which provides domestic violence survivors with easily accessible court-sited services to obtain restraining orders as a critical step in the legal process to protect themselves and their children.
