Wayne County Family Law Bar Association to host charity drive

The Wayne County Family Law Bar Association is kicking off its annual summer charity drive that culminates with a Golf Outing and Dinner for Charity on September 18 at Dearborn Hills Golf Course. This year the named charities are Growth Works and the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic.

Growth Works is a private, non-profit organization serving youth and families in Western Wayne County since 1971. Since its founding, the agency has continued to design innovative programs to meet the needs and challenges of the community. One of its main programs within Family Services is Supervised Parenting and Visitation services. Trained monitors observe court-ordered supervised parenting time.

The William Booth Legal Aid Clinic provides free legal services to people who live at or below national poverty guidelines. It handles mostly family law and landlord/tenant issues. The Clinic focuses on domestic relations and family law, landlord-tenant relations, employment and workplace law, and how to choose a lawyer.

Contributions to the charity of your choice can be mailed directly to the WCFLBA President, Carla Testani, 33900 Schoolcraft Road, Livonia, MI, 48154 on or before September 18. Just name the charity as recipient.
