Tim Fox is the polar opposite of the lawyer found in stereotypical jokes. Far from being greedy or stingy with his time and knowledge, as a volunteer for Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic, he regularly stretches the bounds of what it means to give freely of oneself. When unavoidable hiccups in the system threaten to shut down an intake on a particular day or when time is critical for a certain client, Tim simply improvises.Read More
For Americans, the month of November brings with it the reminder to take notice of the blessings in our lives and to be grateful for them. This November was no different. At the Clinic, we took stock of things like amazing partnerships with organizations like Shepherd Community Center, a group that is fighting to end generational poverty on the near Eastside of Indianapolis every single day. We also reflected on current events happening in our world and in our country, and our Executive Director Chris Purnell shared his thoughts on what it means to respond to them in a way that brings glory to Christ.Read More

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 email@example.com
