Join our Team

Philadelphia VIP is a nonprofit that recruits and supports volunteer attorneys to represent low-income Philadelphians who face critical legal issues but cannot afford a lawyer.

Our permanent staff team consists of attorneys, case managers, and other professionals and is highly collaborative, creative, and passionate about our leveraging model of service. VIP’s team also includes law student interns and attorney fellows.

Job Opening: Homeownership Project Administrator

Philadelphians experiencing a “tangled title” have a legal claim to their home (such as through inheritance) but do not have their name on the deed, preventing them from accessing benefits and services available to homeowners. The Homeownership Project Administrator plays a critical role in supporting VIP’s tangled title project by providing logistical and administrative support to volunteers and by managing the Tangled Title Fund grant program.
