Working with 15 attorneys and volunteers from JPMorgan Chase Bank, staff of the CCH Law Project ran targeted outreach April 18 at two elementary schools and a family shelter on Chicago’s West Side.

The event assisted 63 parents at Howe and Ward elementary schools and the Single Room Housing Assistance Corporation (SRHAC).

Attorneys assisted homeless and at-risk families on more than 100 issues, including birth certificate requests, public benefits enrollment, and enrolling in preschool.

“It was among our most successful outreach days,” said Law Project Director Patricia Nix-Hodes.

The Law Project regularly hosts volunteers participating in the annual “Chase Day of Service” initiative. Sharlita Davis, a Chase attorney and CCH Board member, helps organize the outreach initiative.
