The Community Justice Program, the San Antonio Bar Association’s pro bono project, will be able to expand and upgrade infrastructure thanks to a $20,800 grant from the Texas Bar Foundation.
The money will help CJP replace malfunctioning laptops and cover the purchase of other equipment the program needs for its services.
Since October 2002, the program has held community clinics offering legal advice and services in areas of law including family law, wills and probate, and veterans law. CJP has helped more than 10,000 low-income clients since the start of the clinics, according to a press release. With the grant from the Texas Bar Foundation, the program will be better able to accommodate volunteer demand and assist clients.
The Texas Bar Foundation has awarded more than $18 million in grants to law-related programs since it began in 1965, according to a press release.
