GBA Partners with Women’s Resource Center
The GBA has partnered with the Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro (WRC) and is looking for volunteers!
Started in 1995, the Women’s Resource Center is designed to help women navigate life’s hurdles, to access community services, to develop new skill sets, and to move lives forward. The organization’s mission? To promote the self-reliance of women by assessing needs, providing services and acting as a gateway to community resources.
The WRC is looking for attorneys to participate in its Free Attorney Hotline to assist women in making well-informed decisions based on clear knowledge of their legal rights and responsibilities as they move through life transitions.
The program allows community women to receive 15 minutes of telephone consultation with an attorney through appointments on the attorney hotline.
Attorneys from all areas of law are encouraged to volunteer, but the WRC is in particular need of volunteers for matters relating to separation/divorce, landlord/tenant, and immigration. The time commitment is as little as 15 minutes per month and is an ongoing volunteer opportunity.
For further information about how to volunteer, please contact the Community Involvement committee chair, Jonathan M. Parisi.
