Project H.E.L.P. Seeks Volunteers
Looking for a great (and easy!) non intrusive and non time-consuming way to volunteer pro bono hours in Central Florida? Consider donating time to Project H.E.L.P.
Homeless Experience Legal Protection (H.E.L.P.) enlists local attorneys, law students, and law firm secretaries and paralegals in cities across the country to provide pro bono legal assistance to homeless individuals.
This assistance often takes the form of a single consultation but occasionally extends further, depending on clients’ needs. Volunteers meet with their clients at local shelters and other social service organizations that are accessible to the homeless population.
This week, Shutts & Bowen (current leader of the Orlando chapter of this national organization), hosted a reception for Project H.E.L.P. volunteers and future volunteers at their Orlando office. Michelle Suskauer President of The Florida Bar 2018-2019 spoke about this honorable cause. Members of #TeamShutts from across the state were in attendance, as well as a number of supportive Judges, local attorneys, and the generous volunteers who make time to help the city’s homeless on a regular basis.
Charles Robinson Fawsett and Ella Shenhav (of Shutts’ Orlando and Tampa offices, respectively) were thanked for their tireless dedication to Project H.E.L.P., and also to the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association, Inc., and to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
