The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Lawndale Christian Legal Center's mission is to show and share the love of Jesus by providing legal services grounded in restorative justice for youth in the Lawndale area.
Our vision is to raise up justly-treated youth who are restored from trauma, empowered to lead, embraced by their families and community, and free from the criminal justice system.
We do this by providing legal representation and social service care to court-involved youth, ages 24 and younger, who reside in Chicago, IL’s community of North Lawndale.
Services include legal representation, case management, one-on-one mentoring, jobs training and placement, mental health services, an after school program, and a diversion program.
As a non-profit organization, our volunteers are an integral part of fulfilling our vision. From grabbing a bite to eat with a youth under the one-on-one mentoring program to building relationships in a group setting with the After School Program, volunteers are indispensable.
