VIP’s model of service has been proven effective. In late 2018, Harvard Law School’s Access to Justice Lab published the results of its rigorous, multi-year study of VIP’s divorce program.
Philadelphia VIP’s divorce representation program was effective, spectacularly so. The program made a difference in its participants’ lives. There is little more to say.
We placed more full-representation cases with volunteer attorneys in 2019 than during any year in VIP history.
As the ripple effects of the COVID-19 crisis hit Philadelphia, the poorest major city in the country, the need for free legal assistance with critical issues – housing, income, family – is rapidly growing.
VIP’s goal is to say “yes!” to 100% of clients who seek our help with critical legal issues. At present, we have to turn away almost 4 out of 10 eligible clients.
There are more than 14,000 attorneys in Philadelphia, close to 1,400 of whom worked on a VIP case last year.
To close the gap and serve all eligible clients, we are counting on you. Please:
