Open Hands is blessed with the support of over 125 volunteer who donate their time to serving our clients! This summer, we are challenging our volunteer supporters to assist Open Hands in an additional way -- by raising $15,000! We are off to a strong start and are excited to spotlight volunteer-donor Crystal Persaud and highlight her personal reasons for donating to Open Hands. Open Hands’ clients face real legal issues and without Open Hands, they would not be resolved. Crystal is a real estate attorney in New York City and she donates to Open Hands because she values the ability to work one-on-one with individuals to resolve pressing legal issues. Listen to Crystal share a particularly impactful client experience in the video below.
Open Hands is on the move! Our clients are demanding our services and we are doing as much as we can to meet their needs. In 2012, we have already served 150 clients, double the amount of clients we served in the same time period in 2011; provided over $24,000 worth of pro bono legal services to clients, expanded to three partner sites, assisted clients in over 30 housing matters, and assisted clients in over 20 public benefits matters!
We cannot do this important work without your financial support! Are you eager to take an active role in supporting our ministry? Our volunteer campaign is off to a strong start, but we need your help to meet our goal of $15,000. Join Crystal by making a donation today.
