Thank you for answering the call to support Philadelphia VIP’s important mission. Every dollar you contribute helps provide access to justice to those who need it the most: low-income Philadelphians facing legal issues. VIP enables the private bar to support our neighbors in preventing homelessness, preserving their income, supporting family stability, and promoting our community’s economic development.
Your gift will help keep families in their homes, allow small businesses to succeed, and much more.
Each day, our low-income neighbors face critical legal challenges – from evictions to divorces – on their own because they can’t afford to hire a lawyer. VIP addresses this civil justice gap by connecting clients with volunteer attorneys. Last year, we served nearly 3,200 household members, including over 1,000 children.
VIP is the “agency of last resort” for low-income Philadelphians seeking legal services. The average annual income for a VIP client in a two-person household is $17,844, and 87% of VIP clients are people of color.
Every dollar you give helps balance the scales for people who would otherwise need to navigate the legal system without assistance.
VIP’s programs focus on strengthening communities. Our volunteers work to preserve homeownership in low-income neighborhoods, support small businesses and local nonprofits, and stabilize Philadelphia families caught in legal battles.
Every $1 spent on VIP’s budget yields over $4 worth of legal services, thanks to volunteers contributing their time and talent. When you donate to VIP, you can rest assured your gift is helping Philadelphians, one case at a time.
If you have questions about giving to VIP, please contact Jennifer Hwang, Development Manager.
