WBF Launches 25th Anniversary Pledge Campaign
As the WBF nears its 25th anniversary in 2018, our services have never been more relevant. We receive more than 1,600 calls each year from Massachusetts residents experiencing domestic violence, and the state’s burgeoning low-income elder population faces unique healthcare and financial challenges. Our pro bono legal services to low-income women, survivors of domestic violence, and elders help thousands of marginalized individuals navigate a complex legal system in order to ensure their safety and help them regain independence and self-sufficiency.
Our 25th Anniversary Campaign will help to fund our vital work in the coming years and meet the ever increasing demand for our services by:
•Expanding our capacity to provide emergency representation for survivors of domestic violence and their children in order to help them gain immediate access to safety and the resources they need to rebuild their lives
•Increasing our language translation services in order to represent more non-English speaking clients.
•Improving client services by creating an online library for volunteer attorneys with easy access to legal forms and other materials needed to represent clients quickly and efficiently
•Expanding our services throughout the Commonwealth by leveraging partnerships with county bar associations.
Join us in this life-changing work. Your support empowers low-income women and survivors of abuse to break the cycle of violence and poverty for themselves and their children. Your support helps low-income elders gain the security and peace of mind that comes with maintaining control over their healthcare and finances as they age. Make your campaign pledge today.
