Throughout the month of August, HPHLAC was the featured non-profit at the First Bank of Highland Park Ruth Fell Wander Community Wall. We were honored to be selected and to have the opportunity for the community to learn more about the services we provide. Highlights on the wall included success stories about how the clinic’s volunteer attorneys have helped individuals and their families during its first year of operation. It included information about partner agencies that are integral to the clinic’s work.
On Thursday, August 25th, we celebrated our first year of operation and our display with members of the Board, volunteers, clients, and community members. The presentation included statements from our new Executive Director, Susan Shulman; our Managing Attorney, Kathryn Vanden Berk; Mayor Nancy Rotering; and a client who we successfully helped in a housing matter.
Thank you to the First Bank of Highland Park and all the attendees! We are so happy you could celebrate with us!
