Temporary Remote Intake & Legal Assistance Project

Organization: Veterans Legal Services

Veterans Legal Services is looking for assistance with outreach to the veteran community in Massachusetts, with a particular focus in the areas of Central and Western MA, as well as the Southshore.  Given the COVID-19 pandemic, VLS has created and implemented a temporary remote intake and legal assistance process and we need help getting the word out to the veterans who are typically used to our intake being done through in-person clinic days only.  Depending on future needs, volunteers may have the opportunity to conduct intakes and provide legal assistance.  VLS Pro Bono Director, Angie Vargas, will provide instructions, guidance, and supervision to the volunteer law student or attorney who takes this project.  Start date is as soon as possible so sign up now!
