The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center is an independent, nonprofit organization supported entirely by voluntary contributions. The Pro Bono Center recruits, trains, and mobilizes volunteer attorneys to take pro bono cases serving individuals living in poverty who are at risk of losing their homes, their livelihoods, and their families. The center also helps small businesses and community-based nonprofits needing legal help. Last year, the Pro Bono Center touched the lives of almost 20,000 D.C. residents.
