AVLF creates safe and stable homes and families by inspiring attorneys to fight for equal justice. We leverage the full power and resources of the legal community so that when low-income Atlantans stand up to demand safe and stable housing, to insist on pay for an honest day’s work, or to break free from domestic violence, a lawyer always stands with them.
And we invite you to look at our organization and our work from another perspective: we create meaningful pro bono opportunities for lawyers looking to have even more impact upon our community.
AVLF accomplishes these multiple missions through four core volunteer programs and several smaller ones designed to support the core effort. AVLF’s major programs are (1) The Saturday Lawyer Program, (2) The Domestic Violence Safe Families Office Program, (3) The Guardian ad Litem Program and (4) The Eviction Defense Program. Through these programs, AVLF’s staff and volunteers have two primary goals: (a) to promote freedom from violence and fear and (b) to advocate for the economic and housing security of low-income families and children.
By donating to AVLF, you make it possible for us to reach those families who would otherwise stand alone in their search for legal protection and justice, even when their very safety or shelter is at stake. Thank you for standing with us.
