“The Men and Women We Serve” by A. Sangrey
This is an update from Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia (CLCP), a non-profit I had a small part in launching years ago. The volunteer attorneys who continue to serve the poor of Philadelphia are amazing. Here are just two of their stories .
…To preach good tidings to the poor…to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives…” (Isaiah 61: 1).
The Men and Women We Serve
“Ms. Eva Rodriguez came to us for help. Earlier this year, she became entangled in a case where her aggressor filed a criminal complaint after she had responded in self-protection to his hostility. Through our attorneys’ involvement, the criminal charges were dropped.
For Mr. Luiz Rivera, family is his number one priority, and a matter with child custody hindered him from being involved consistently. ‘First and foremost, I am a father,’ he said. ‘My boys are everything.’
From a son without a father-figure to a dad who has chosen to leave a different legacy for his teenage boys, Mr. Rivera found legal help through several of our attorneys.”
