During this last month of summer, we at Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic focused our minds on the theme of Forgiveness. The blog highlighted Project PEACE, a program that helps those who are going through a Family Law conflict to resolve their issues outside of a courtroom. We met an immigrant couple who became tangled up in the confusing and convoluted tax code, but who then received assistance through our Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic, as well as financial forgiveness from the IRS. Michael Hurst, Executive Director of Legacy House, discussed the free counseling services their organization provides to victims of violent trauma. And finally, we invited you to join us at our biggest annual fundraiser, Justice For All, which will take place on Wednesday, September 23rd. There's still time to support the Clinic and the work we do! Please purchase your tickets here.
And don't forget to share your final thoughts on the theme of Forgiveness in the comments below! We would so love to hear how you have experienced forgiveness in your life. What stories can you share?
As we close out August, remember to check back in on Monday, Sept. 7th as Executive Director Chris Purnell shares his thoughts on our next theme: "Renewal."
Thank you for your continued support and readership!
