Community Law Center Inc's Fundraiser:

Help Us Help Baltimore's Communities Grow

THE STORY:

     According to The New York Times, groundbreaking research has shown that a rise in community groups is responsible for an overall drop in national crime.

     Community Law Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, provides legal services to community and nonprofit organizations that lack the financial resources to pay for private legal representation. Each year, our staff and over 500 volunteer attorneys help form and support the efforts of hundreds of grassroots organizations and nonprofits for the betterment of Baltimore’s neighborhoods. We are Maryland’s only legal services organization dedicated solely to strengthening neighborhoods in this way. 

     Our work has:

     * Facilitated the revitalization of vacant houses; 

     * Reduced crime stemming from residential and commercial properties; 

     * Demanded and crafted policy reform to help Baltimore’s neighborhoods; and 

     * Helped communities and nonprofits accomplish their goals!  

     But we can't do this work alone. We receive dozens of inquiries each week and average one completed application for services every day. We need your support to help us sustain our mission and work towards our vision to use the law to overcome and mitigate many of the social, economic, and environmental problems that plague our neighborhoods. 

     Please join Community Law Center and help us raise $20,000 this year so we can continue to help Baltimore’s communities grow. The transformation begins with you! 


     Sincerely, 

     Kristine Dunkerton, Executive Director

At the same time, the number of nonprofits began to rise sharply across the country, particularly those addressing neighborhood and youth development."
