Many organizations seek to improve the lives of children. Yet few organizations attempt to achieve this important goal by proactively facilitating the creation of strong and supportive familial environments. This focus on the family is a hallmark of Lumpkin County Family Connection’s approach to ensuring that children are equipped to achieve in the classroom and in life.

Family Connection is a statewide initiative in Georgia, consisting of 159 community collaborative partnerships committed to making measurable improvements for children and families in Georgia. The organization has a large network within the state: every county has its own local Family Connection Collaborative Organization. At the county level, each Family Connection works with local schools, nonprofits and others to collect data about the issues confronting the community’s children and families. After analyzing the relevant data, Family Connection creates goals narrowly tailored to address the specific needs of the surrounding community. Lumpkin County Family Connection has responded to the needs of its community by pursuing two extremely important goals. First, Lumpkin County Family Connection facilitates the prevention of child abuse and neglect within the community. Second, the organization helps every child succeed in the classroom.

In pursuit of these goals, Lumpkin County Family Connection participates in several initiatives and programs. The organization helps to run a Family Advocacy Program which places an advocate in each elementary school within Lumpkin County. This family advocate works with at-risk children, creates a plan to assist them, and offers education to parents in both group and one-on-one settings.

The organization also participates in a school supplies drive, provides holiday gifts to disadvantaged children, and facilitates the delivery of food to children who have been identified as food insecure through the volunteer-run “Back Pack Buddies” program. Lumpkin County Family Connection also trains adults in the community and equips them to identify, handle and prevent incidents of sexual abuse through Stewards of Children. This endeavor has enjoyed great success in Lumpkin County. In fact, Stewards of Children of Lumpkin County was the first Stewards of Children affiliate to train 10% of the adults in the community on sexual abuse prevention.

Finally, Lumpkin County Family Connection helps to operate a mentor program that allows volunteers from the community to serve as role models for local children. The volunteers are required to go through extensive background checks and training and to spend at least 30 minutes of meaningful time a week with a child from their community.

Lumpkin County Family Connection became a PBPA client in April 2016 and participated in one of PBPA’s Legal Check Ups that same year. For Brigette Barker, the Director of Lumpkin County Family Connection, this was an incredibly valuable experience: “[m]y board chair and I really enjoyed participating in the nonprofit Legal Check Up. It was a great opportunity to identify our legal needs and develop a timeline and strategic plan around our needs.”

Volunteer attorneys including John Griffee, Rob LaPorta, Garland Reid, Dara Mann, Keilee Padgett, Reiko Feaver, Brennan Bolt, Matt Strumph, Montoya Ho-Sang and Tim Phillips have assisted Lumpkin County Family Connection by addressing questions related to fundraising and employment and by drafting contracts, board policies and documentation for volunteers.

Ms. Barker praised the caliber of the work produced by the volunteer attorneys, as well as the speed with which matters are resolved. Overall, Ms. Barker feels that her organization has reaped immense benefit from working with Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta and its cadre of professional, experienced, and quality volunteer attorneys.

Since January 1, 2018, 227 attorneys have volunteered for new matters with PBPA! Click here for a list of individuals who have volunteered so far this year.

To: Carly Regan & Todd Williams, Turner
From: Ferst Foundation

Carly Regan and Todd Williams at Turner are fantastic! They have helped us immensely with trademarks, are amazingly proactive and have truly gone above and beyond to ensure that we have all the bases covered. I also love that they genuinely care about our mission. I feel like they are part of our team. Just recently, with their help, we discovered that there was a trademark conflict with our new logo design. We got right on revising the design, got it completed and submitted to Carly and Todd. Within 3 hours, Carly responded to give us a “thumbs up” to proceed with the new logo! In all, it took us 8 days to go from a serious design conflict to a new logo design that we can trademark. Because of that, we hardly missed a beat with our rebranding effort. Incredible!

To: Michael Del Gaudio, Troutman Sanders
From: Innovative Solutions for Disadvantage & Disability

Michael DelGaudio deserves an award for patience! It took over a year to get approval on the re-write of our bylaws and articles of incorporation. He patiently answered [our] questions and explained the bylaws using plain language. He walked us through the process to file the amended articles and followed up on the status. He did an excellent job!

To: George Sewell, ThyssenKrupp
From: HopeWorks

Not only has George Sewell helped us with numerous legal forms and matters, he has done so with professionalism, embracing our ministry and our mission.

To: Jenny Case, Nelson Mullins
From: CASA Paulding

Jenny Case with Nelson Mullins updated our personnel handbook from start to finish. It took weeks to complete and she did a wonderful job. In fact, we have shared it with one other CASA program!

To: Shane Lord, The Home Depot
From: Peace Prep

Shane Lord has been a delight to work with and has gone above and beyond to ensure we get projects done, but also is diligent in checking in our organization’s ability to complete its stated purpose. I’m always encouraged to talk with Shane about more than just the current project and his genuine interest has been wind in my sails.

ATLANTA – March 21, 2018 – Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, a tax-exempt organization that matches volunteer lawyers with local nonprofits in need of free legal counsel, recognized outstanding volunteer attorneys for their pro bono efforts at its annual reception on Tuesday, March 20 at the office of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP.

Equifax received the “Corporation of the Year Award” for its contributions of time and legal expertise in helping Atlanta-area nonprofits. Fourteen Equifax attorneys worked on 19 pro bono matters in 2017 including Julia Houston, Chief Transformation Officer at Equifax, who accepted the award.

Paul Hastings received the “Law Firm of the Year Award” for its outstanding efforts in taking legal matters referred by PBPA. Over 400 Paul Hastings attorneys have volunteered with PBPA since 2005.

The 2018 Champion Award went to AT&T which, through its predecessor BellSouth, was a founding supporter of PBPA and has provided both significant volunteer and financial assistance to the organization since 2005.

PBPA also honored several individuals with a “Volunteer of the Year Award,” including Kathy Solley of Nelson Mullins, Anna Holcombe of Rollins, Brent Houk of UPS, and Jamie Konn of DLA Piper. PBPA also recognized the team of volunteer attorneys who assisted Hosea Feed the Hungry & Homeless with the relocation of its headquarters: An Tran and Mike Lee of Jones Day and Robert Shaw and Joseph Scibilia of Kilpatrick, Townsend & Stockton.

Elizabeth Omilami, CEO of Hosea Feed the Hungry & Homeless and a PBPA client, shared how the legal services provided through PBPA have aided her organization, including managing an unexpected relocation. She thanked the attorneys that volunteered over 250 hours to guide Hosea to its new operational home, at a value of over $90,000 in legal fees.

“Obviously, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta would not exist without our volunteers and our donors. This event gives us a chance to thank them and to highlight the extraordinary efforts of some of our outstanding volunteers,” said Rachel Epps Spears, Executive Director of Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta.

Spears would also like to thank the event’s sponsors including Presenting Sponsor Clarivate Analytics/CompuMark, Sustaining Sponsor Aprio, and Supporting Sponsors Axiom Law, Discovery Litigation, Donnelley Financial Solutions, and State Bank & Trust Company.

PBPA provides free legal services to community-based nonprofits that operate programs benefiting low income or disadvantaged individuals. PBPA matches eligible organizations with volunteer attorneys from the leading corporations and law firms in Atlanta. Since it opened its doors thirteen years ago, PBPA has assigned and supported over 3,000 volunteer lawyers in aiding over 850 nonprofit clients. In 2017 alone, PBPA provided free legal services valued over $4.5 million to Atlanta-area nonprofits. PBPA is funded by donations from corporations, law firms, foundations, bar sections and individuals.

Mindy Doster and Will Ledbetter recently joined PBPA’s Board of Directors. Mindy Doster is Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel of Payment Services for U.S. Bank and General Counsel of Elavon, the bank’s Atlanta-based payments company. Will Ledbetter is Senior Counsel at Southern Company Services.

Per her duties for US Bank and Elavon, Mindy oversees a team of attorneys and legal professionals in the United States, United Kingdom, Poland and Mexico. Before joining Elavon, she worked at Long, Aldridge & Norman as an associate and as a law clerk for the Honorable Robert L. Vining, Jr., Senior U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Georgia. Mindy graduated from Duke University and Vanderbilt University School of Law. In addition to volunteering for PBPA, Mindy’s community involvement activities include work with the Marist School, Holy Spirit Catholic Church, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

“I am grateful for PBPA’s support of in-house attorneys, particularly those in small Atlanta-based teams like mine, and I appreciate the opportunity to give back to PBPA through board leadership,” said Mindy. Under her leadership, Elavon’s entire legal department volunteered with PBPA in 2016.

Will works with Southern Company and its subsidiaries on securities and corporate governance practices. Prior to joining Southern Company, Will spent seven years at King & Spalding as an associate. He is a graduate of Rice University and Harvard Law School. Will’s pro bono interests include working with Warrior 2 Citizen as well as PBPA clients Georgia Micro Enterprise Networks and Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs.“I am honored to join the PBPA board and excited to help further PBPA’s mission of connecting local nonprofits with vital legal services,” said Will Ledbetter.

To: Peter Duitsman, Turner
From: Camp Twitch and Shout

Thank you so much for all of your help and support – I know a lot of the production company’s requests were last minute as you were heading out of town so I really appreciate all of your help and support with this matter. They were very considerate and respectful when they got to camp and it was a pleasure having them there.

To: Alex Strang, Nelson Mullins
From: ISDD – Innovative Solutions for Disadvantage and Disability

I am so grateful for this help! I don’t even want to think about how it might have gone without PBPA and Alex! I had never signed an office lease before and so had no idea of the many pitfalls and considerations that there were involved. Thanks to Alex, we didn’t have any problems at all!

Breaking the chains of homelessness is a vital mission that many nonprofits strive to achieve. Our House exists to tackle the root causes of homelessness by offering children and families experiencing homelessness the education and comprehensive support services they need to thrive. Our House opened its doors in 1988 and has been providing metro Atlanta families experiencing homelessness with reliable, free childcare ever since. In 2014, Our House merged with Genesis Shelter, a nonprofit which served homeless newborns and their mothers, in an effort to help more homeless families in the metro Atlanta area.

Our House offers 4 programs to serve the needs of the homeless. Its Housing Services program aims to provide homeless families with emergency housing in a safe and caring environment. Families can receive a private room, daily nutritious meals, laundry services and a weekly provision of infant and personal care items. Our House’s Family Services program matches each family with a family advocate who offers the support and resources needed to become financially self-sufficient and gain permanent housing. The Early Childhood Education program strives to help homeless children prepare for school readiness and future success.

The program offers homeless children aged 4 weeks through 5 years old a dynamic curriculum and individualized lesson plans to nurture their physical, cognitive, language and social-emotional development. The program also provides a variety of onsite services including formal developmental assessment, immunizations, and periodic health check-ups. Our House’s Employment Training Services program is designed to equip homeless individuals with the job training skills and resources they need to secure stable and adequate employment. The program offers a Child Development Associate Certification Training program that includes free training and internships to empower homeless participants with the skills needed to work in the growing childcare section.

Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta is proud to have been working with Our House since 2008. “Working with Pro Bono Partnership and the wonderful volunteer attorneys has been very rewarding. It allows us to manage risk, and ensure that our practices and policies meet legal requirements and regulations. We also often learn about new or emerging practices that we might not have otherwise.” Said Tyese Lawyer, President and CEO of Our House.

The volunteer attorneys who have generously offered their outstanding services to Our House include Anna Holcombe from Rollins, Inc., Brian Harms and John Brittingham from Troutman Sanders, David Cone and Mike Kerman from Eversheds Sutherland, Jamie Konn from DLA Piper, Katie Beall from Southern Company, and Whitney Coble from Nelson Mullins. These attorneys have assisted Our House with matters ranging from revising its employee manual and advising on HR issues to conducting legal audits of its website.
