IFPN- Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network Volunteers
The Clinic is an Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network agency. As such we work hard to provide housing counseling and training to our clients facing the threat of foreclosure. As this program continues growing and changing in order to meet the needs of our clients, the Clinic is in need of volunteers willing to provide administrative support to our IFPN staff. Client communication, filing, and database work are all areas in which the Clinic’s IFPN program could use volunteer support.
LITC- Low Income Taxpayer Clinic Volunteers
The Clinic is a Low Income Taxpayer Clinic agency that provides tax education and preventive legal education to our clients. As the demand for this education and assistance increases so do our volunteer needs. LITC utilizes the skills of law students, students with second language skills and undergraduate students with a paralegal studies, business or economics background. The volunteer work involves outreach, workshop training, education and general administrative work as well as client interaction.
Prayer Partner Volunteers
The Clinic is a faith-based organization and as such we seek to perform our work as ministry. While we provide legal services as a nonprofit organization, part of the Clinic’s mission is to be an example of Christ’s love in the work that we do. As a part of this, the Clinic offers optional prayer to clients at our intake locations. This position is excellent for those individuals who feel spiritually inclined and wish to share a listening heart with people in the midst of crisis. The commitment can be as little as two hours once a month or as much as the Prayer Partner would like to commit.
BSW/MSW- Social Work Practicum Volunteers & Interns
The Clinic has several programs in which a BSW or MSW student could perform their practicum internship. In the past, social work students have assisted at our Project GRACE Help Desk and assisted with developing resources for our Immigrant Justice and Victim Justice Programs . This is an excellent opportunity for social work students to develop their learned skills, work with clients and help develop the Clinic’s resources in our various programs.
General Administration & Paralegal Volunteers
Like any legal office, the Clinic has general administrative needs as well as paralegal needs. If you have skills and experience in administrative work or you are a paralegal student looking for real world legal experience, the Clinic has a variety of ways in which a volunteer/intern can get involved. This opportunity is best for those who can volunteer during business hours and can come into the Clinic’s main office.
