Day after day, the phones at the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation ring with calls from low-income Atlanta residents looking for ways to make minimum payments to avoid eviction, foreclosure or other adverse financial and legal consequences that jeopardize their families’ well-being and security. Realizing the full amount of their income tax refund provides working families with additional funds to help maintain their stability. These same families frequently have no living wills or other advance directives that will assist them and their families in the event of serious illness or disability.
To help address each need, during the first three Saturdays in February, 14 volunteer lawyers and 11 volunteer paralegals working with the AVLF joined forces with 300 volunteers from Deloitte Services LP, in partnership with St. Paul A.M.E. Church in southwest Atlanta, to provide assistance to people during the 2007 Community Income Tax Assistance program.
