Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Legal Aid Foundation, donating their time, energy, knowledge, and resources. The Foundation continuously seeks new ways to:
- Match volunteers to their desire to make an impact
- Offer volunteers the resources they need to be successful
- Thank our volunteers publicly and privately
- Recognize the organizations who support volunteerism to Legal Aid
- Offer a variety of volunteer opportunities based on time available, interests and expertise
