The FLC is announcing its name change to the Berkshire Center for Justice, Inc. We still offer free legal clinics every Wednesday at noon at the Guthrie Center along with their free lunch program. Eight years since our inception, legal clinics are now one of many programs we offer and our new name better reflects our community education, direct legal services, outreach and self advocacy programs. Along with our new name, and as the result of a successful pilot program, we tested whether clients would feel good about making a $50 donation as a token payment for all of our services. We are grateful to our clients who so generosity showed us their willingness to help support the organization that does so much for them. We now ask for a $50 intake donation that represents approximately 2 hours of attorney time to conduct and process a private office intake. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our policy is and always has been that no one will be turned away and if making the donation creates a financial hardship we can apply a sliding scale or waiver. To learn more about the Berkshire Center for Justice or to volunteer please call 413-854-1955.
“I saw the need for a free legal clinic because it struck me as being very unjust that people don’t have their full rights if they can’t afford legal representation.. I tend to be a doer, so I decided something should be done about that.” .. Eve Schatz
