LCBH's volunteers come from all different backgrounds. Some have never set foot in a courtroom before coming to LCBH, and some are experienced litigators. Some are veteran attorneys with decades of experience under their belt, while others are recent graduates looking to develop their skills.
There's no "standard" eviction case. Every case that comes to LCBH has a story behind it. Every eviction affects an individual or family in different, but equally profound, ways. While a judge may not give a tenant time to tell his story at court, here at LCBH we do.
If you are interested in volunteering with LCBH, please send a copy of your resume to our Pro Bono Coordinator, Samira Nazem at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line, please specify which volunteer opportunity you are interested in.

LCBH provides free, comprehensive legal representation so that renters have a trusted advocate in court. Combined with education, outreach, supportive services and policy initiatives, our programs holistically address both the short-term housing crisis and underlying causes, so that more families can move from a path leading to homelessness to one of safe and stable housing.
