What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Pro Bono Clearinghouse

The Pro Bono Clearinghouse is a referral service, linking experienced volunteer attorneys with nonprofit organizations needing legal assistance. Our virtual law firm of 350 attorneys from 75 different law firms and corporate legal departments assists nonprofits with a variety of transactional matters, including personnel issues, contract negotiations, bylaw review, mergers and intellectual property issues so our community nonprofits. can focus their time and resources on their charitable activities.

A related program, the General Counsel for Nonprofits program, matches nonprofit organizations with a volunteer attorney for one year.

Population(s) Served
Adults

JusticeServer, an online case management system, expedites pro bono service by leveraging cloud technology to support intake, assessment and case assignment by local legal aid organizations, and enabling volunteer attorneys to match with clients requesting pro bono assistance and to upload case information and documentation from their own computers. JusticeServer reduces redundancy and combines the resources of various pro bono providers and maximizes the time volunteer attorneys spend counseling clients in need by reducing the administrative burden of receiving cases and projects.

Population(s) Served

An initiative that invites law firms and corporate workplaces to commit a certain percentage of professional time to pro bono service through a supportive workplace culture and policy changes.

The Eviction Diversion Program is a partnership between GRBF and Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME) to keep people in their homes, connect tenants to financial assistance and financial literacy education, and avoid Unlawful Detainer judgments.

The Triage project is an innovative effort to create a ring of support around local Legal Aid organizations (Central Virginia Legal Aid and Legal Aid Justice Center), with private pro bono attorneys taking on matters in thirteen practice areas so that Legal Aid can concentrate their limited resources on core specialties.
