Hello Volunteers and Happy May to you!

On April 26th the Clinic had another Refugee Adjustment Day where almost 30 volunteers came together to help our 50 refugee clients apply for an adjustment of status to obtain their green cards. It was a fun and exciting day filled with lots of positive energy and good work performed by awesome volunteers. It's days like our Refugee Adjustment Days that remind us at the Clinic how important and powerful it is to harness volunteer efforts and resources to help our clients in need. In just a few short hours we helped many people in a very important way.

Consider helping out with one of our current needs below and pass this along to anyone you think might want to become a volunteer with the Clinic. It's volunteers like you that make hope a possibility for many individuals in need in our community.

Sincerely, Erin Hougland Volunteer Coordinator ehougland@nclegalclinic.org
