On February 12th, PILI partnered with HeplerBroom, SIU Veteran’s Clinic and the Third Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee to host a Legal Help Within Reach Clinic in Edwardsville, Illinois. Attorneys volunteered to help veterans apply for their medical and military records they need to apply for discharge upgrades.
Through Legal Help Within Reach, PILI recruits attorneys and law student volunteers from urban areas to volunteer at free legal clinics for low-income Illinoisans living in rural and underserved communities. These clinics provide much needed and otherwise inaccessible legal assistance to low-income people, families and communities in need.
PILI is grateful for the support of Equal Justice Works, Deere & Company, Lane & Waterman and Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila for providing significant funding to support this project.
