It's time for another day of service to our community!

What clients say:

"I am very appreciative that this service exists."

"It was wonderful to have this service available to us! Hats off to all of the volunteers!" 

“The legal clinic was a godsend. I didn't know what to expect and I was blown away. I left with an exact list of what and when I needed to get things done to do a name and gender change for my teen.”
