California has the largest low-income population in the nation. Without volunteer advocates, many living in poverty would not receive benefits and services to which they are legally entitled.

By volunteering, you can make a tangible difference in the lives of some of the neediest people in Los Angeles County, help to prevent chronic homelessness, and help people to move toward self-sufficiency. Yet, this will require a very limited time commitment - attendance at a 2.5 hour training program provided by Public Counsel attorneys and a commitment to spend 4.5 hours on one day to provide advocacy for needy clients at offices of the Los Angeles County Department of Social Services (DPSS).

A light dinner will be served.
