JustCause, formerly known as Volunteer Legal Services Project of Monroe County, Inc., is committed to ensuring the existence of a readily available panel of skilled volunteers to resolve serious civil legal problems of low-income residents of Monroe County. Through its panel of approximately 1,600 volunteers, JustCause offers pro bono legal services to those in the community who are faced with non-criminal legal problems in the areas of family, immigration, housing, small business, health care and consumer law. Since JustCause's inception, the leaders of the legal community have enthusiastically supported JustCause's program and its mission.
Acknowledging the strength of collaboration, the four legal service providers housed in the Telesca Center for Justice embarked on an innovative and collaborative call to increase access to justice for all in our community. Bonded by the shared belief that legal barriers should never prevent those in our community from achieving their dreams, this collaborative partnership combines the wisdom and expertise of Empire Justice Center, JustCause, the Legal Aid Society of Rochester, and Legal Assistance of Western New York. Together, these partners reach thousands of individuals, empowering our neighbors with equal protection before the law each year. Your support of this innovative collaboration ensures access to high-quality, comprehensive legal services for all, regardless of their financial means.
