Volunteer Resource Center (VRC)

An important part of the LASC pro bono program involves referring cases to pro bono attorneys in lieu of assigning them to an LASC attorney or turning someone away due to lack of resources.

Volunteer Resource Center (VRC):

VRC is a case referral program housed at LASC that sustains two types of volunteers: attorneys who agree to take cases on a pro bono basis and in-house volunteers who sign up for weekly shifts to handle client intake, case evaluation and referral of appropriate cases to our attorney panel. Retired attorneys, paralegals, administrative assistants, and law students can assist as in-house VRC volunteers.

The VRC addresses several areas, including some special programs:

VRC Housing Project

VRC Consumer Project

Unemployment Compensation Appeal Project

ICAN Escrow Project (Improving Conditions and Neighborhoods)

IEP Advocacy Project

Chapter 7 Pro Bono Bankruptcy Project

Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic

Seniors Referral Project
