Roland had never heard of legal aid until he needed to seek the court's protection to be reunited with his wife. Faced with the daunting challenges of the legal system, CCLS was his only hope. Roland found the support he needed in the Conservatorship Clinic. “They were very helpful to me,” Roland recalls, “I couldn’t have made it through without them.”

CCLS gave Roland and his wife a new sense of security. “I was happy that the justice system worked,” confided Roland. Because of the generosity of our supporters, Roland and his wife can once again enjoy the quiet comfort and happiness of their home. The value of such  a gift cannot be measured in dollars, but in the smiles they exchange.

When justice is given, the rewards are happiness and satisfaction that can be shared by all.

    

When Chava Glassberg began volunteering with CCLS, she did not know what to expect. In a short time, she discovered a deep joy in this work, which she described as, “really lovely…really nice refreshing change.” Her joy became a dedication to volunteering. Without realizing it, Chava discovered the mutual satisfaction of giving.

Giving provides the realization that you are changing lives. The changes are concrete and definite, illustrated in our clients' stories, in their smiles and gratitude. To give is to share the joy of a life made better, richer and more purposeful. It is the satisfaction of knowing you have protected your neighbors from unfair treatment, and taken a stand for justice. When we give, we add meaning to our lives and the lives of others.

Our reward, as Chava says, is, “to feel like you’re on the side of angels.”
