National Pro Bono Week is an initiative of the American Bar Association to recognize the impact that pro bono legal services have on our communities. In Houston alone, nearly half a million people qualify for legal aid. Without lawyers willing to donate their time, most would be left with nowhere to turn. The Houston Bar Association (HBA) matches qualified clients with volunteer lawyers through its pro bono service arm, Houston Volunteer Lawyers.

The HBA and Houston Volunteer Lawyers are teaming up to offer a special slate of services during Pro Bono Week, some of which will become permanent projects. For a full schedule of programs, visit www.makejusticehappen.org/probonoweek or call (713) 228-0732
