ALA Cleveland Chapter & Support of Legal Aid

Back

The Cleveland Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators is partnering with Legal Aid to make a different this month. 

Please make your gift below to ensure credit to Cleveland ALA!

At the November 2017 meeting, Melanie Shakarian from Legal Aid will discuss Legal Aid’s current events and programs.  One program in particular that will be covered is the medical-legal partnership.  Legal Aid attorneys are integrated at MetroHealth to help patients navigate the complex government and community systems that often hold solutions to many social determinants of health – for example, income support for food insecure families, utility shut-off protection for those with health complications, and eviction prevention that keeps children from becoming homeless.

The program, now with four attorneys and one paralegal, is at four locations at MetroHealth. Through the program, in addition to handling cases and doing advocacy, Legal Aid attorneys educate multi-disciplinary teams of health care providers and students about patients’ legal rights.

GIVE TODAY via the online form below, and Cleveland ALA will match donations made to Legal Aid up to $1000. If you have already donated, please forward your receipt to Marie Chomyk, and we will also include those donations in the match as well.

I love working for Legal Aid because the organization levels the playing field for eligible clients who don’t have access to the civil legal system because they can’t afford a lawyer.
