Love, Legal Aid, and Omelets

March 26, 2017

Below is a volunteer profile from Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia (CLCP), a faith-based non-profit near and dear to my heart.

“Attorney Vicki Piontek is a gem.  She loves Jesus, she loves her family, and she loves CLCP.  She has become an indispensable member of the CLCP family.

Vicki and her husband run their own law firm where they help defend clients from unfair debt collection practices.  She is vigilant in her client representation.

If there is a CLCP event you can count on Vicki to be there to serve the clients, assist the volunteers, and feed everyone a hearty meal.  She makes a mean omelet!

Vicki has a heart for people, and she wants to see those around her do well in all aspects of life, especially in their relationships with Jesus.  Vicki carries the light of Christ wherever she goes and continues to illuminate CLCP.

Thank you Vicki for all you do and for what you have added to CLCP!!!”

Therefore I urge you, brothers, on account of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, which is your spiritual service of worship” (Rom. 12: 1).

Please, pray for the victims of the terrorist attack in London.  Pray, also, for South Sudan where aid workers are being prevented from reaching the 5.5 million people impacted by famine.  US Deputy Ambassador Michele Sison describes the situation there as approaching “deliberate starvation tactics.”

  1. How nice that you spotlight the non-profit here as public relations is vital to the success of any organization like that (and there’s usually such limited funding for them, unfortunately)

    • It was my baby. We started the first legal clinic on a shoestring, could not even get support from local churches at the outset. None of the handful of lawyers we had initially was remotely wealthy. They gave generously of their time, but had no funds to spare. Poverty law does not exactly pay (LOL). With God’s help, the program has grown to 10 clinics!

  2. That’s wonderful news. Congratulations and since this blog more terrorist attacks and the horrific chemical attacks in Syria have claimed more lives. All very sad and tragic; yet, it’s nice to hear of people like you who are working hard to help others. Thank you for what you do!

    Thank you for your visit. I was interested to read your site. I too suffered many years of abuse but now am free. Scars are always there but fading now. I only wish there was something like your organisation in Australia.

    • I’m sorry to hear of your abuse. How wonderful that you have healed so well! I’ve read about the controversial abuse allegations involving Aborigines. Whatever the nation or continent, there are too few actively fighting abuse (or poverty, for that matter). God be with you.

        Yes it was a horrid time here in Australian history. The government said sorry back in 2008 I think it was but it doesn’t seem to be enough.
