Attorneys provide pro bono legal services to local nonprofits on National Day of Service
Seven Detroit-area nonprofit organizations are now better prepared to achieve their missions after receiving pro bono services during a legal clinic presented by Michigan Community Resources. On January 23, Michigan Community Resources (MCR) joined providers in seven other cities across the nation, from San Francisco to New York and Washington DC, to present the free legal consultations to nonprofit organizations serving the elderly, families, and other vulnerable populations. The event was part of a National Day of Service for pro bono legal service providers.
“Michigan Community Resources has facilitated legal clinics for over 20 years,” Shamyle Dobbs, Chief Executive Officer for Michigan Community Resources, said. “Each clinic session illuminates not only the power of pro bono service, but also the deep commitment and impact of the nonprofit sector in our region. MCR is privileged to be positioned to catalyze relationships that result in moving the missions of nonprofit organizations in our region forward. The power in the connections forged is immeasurable.”
