Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta volunteers provided more than $2.3 million worth of legal services to Atlanta nonprofits last year. The time and talents of our attorney volunteers make a big difference to the nonprofits they serve. Below are some “shout outs” to our volunteers from their appreciative nonprofit clients:

To: Marla Nicholson of CDC Software
From: Sober Living America
As you know, Sober Living America is an organization that provides housing, recovery, food, and work development services to homeless and destitute individuals seeking help. Without the service and volunteer work of wonderful professionals like yourself and Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, we would not be able to offer our services to those in need. Thank you and God bless you.

To: Professor Carol Morgan, Paula Briceño and Aaron Christensen of University of Georgia
From: A Friend’s House
Thank you so much for your time helping us with the joint fundraising agreement. We look forward to using this often as the small fundraisers are as important to us as the large ones! As a non-profit agency we must depend on the generosity of others to sustain our programs. Thank you taking the time out of an already busy semester to help us.

To: Chris Maxwell of Morris, Manning and Martin, LLP
From: Youth Enhancement Services
Thank you all of the time and energy you spent improving the most essential documents in our organization. We appreciate your volunteering with Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta and know that the in-kind services of formidable legal professionals like yourself ensure that smaller, community-based organizations continue to impact Atlanta.

To: Payal Cramer of McKenna Long & Aldridge
From: Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse
The generosity of you and of McKenna Long & Aldridge, LLP, allows organizations such as Side by Side to maintain our focus on serving those in need. We are so blessed to have a resource like Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta and your firm to help ensure that we are following best practices and protecting the organization from undue risk in areas in which we lack expertise.

To: Elizabeth Wade of AGL Resources
From: Georgia Rotary District Charter Education Program
Your help was invaluable in resolving what could have been a problematic legal issue. We are now able to fully focus on our core mission of helping tens of thousands of Georgia high school students each year.
