The Nonprofit Alliance is partnering with Michigan Community Resources, a nonprofit organization, to provide free legal services to qualified organizations in Calhoun County.
We are all familiar with free (pro bono) legal services for individuals, especially criminal defendants. Michigan Community Resources arranges for pro bono legal services to nonprofit organizations rather than individuals. This is a unique service which nonprofit organizations cannot find elsewhere, but which is desperately needed. In today’s world, nonprofit organizations face a gamut of legal, regulatory and business issues which require legal and professional assistance. Those serving poorer communities simply do not have resources to hire the legal talent they need. By matching volunteer business lawyers in private practice with these nonprofit organizations, Michigan Communityl Resources fills this need.
MCR also offers Planning & Technical, and Education & Outreach services and support to nonprofit community organizations.
