Jewish Family Service receives grant for Legal Referral Service

Jewish Family Service is pleased to announce that the agency has received a grant for its Legal Referral Service for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

Funding from the Oakland County Bar Foundation will allow the agency’s Legal Referral Service to provide professional trainings and educational programs to JFS staff, the legal community, as well as the broader community on prevalent legal topics.

“We are so very grateful to receive this generous grant,” said Kelly Goldberg, program coordinator of the Legal Referral Service. “It will enable us to once again bring expert Oakland County attorneys to speak to JFS staff about their high demand legal specialties in order to add to our social workers’ knowledge base.”

The JFS Legal Referral Service was created to help JFS clients facing tough economic times to obtain legal consultation and possible representation. The program connects those in need with our community’s most prominent attorneys in the fields of family and elder law, probate, debt resolution and bankruptcy, landlord and tenant issues, real estate and tax law.  Since 2008, the JFS Legal Referral Service has served over 1000 clients with volunteer attorneys providing millions of dollars in pro bono legal services.
