California Western's Community Law Project (CLP) has received a grant from The Solana Beach Fund, part of the Coastal Community Foundation, to support its legal clinic in Solana Beach.
This generous grant will be used for the operation of CLP's free legal clinic in Solana Beach and community education presentations at partner organizations in Solana Beach. This funding will assist CLP in serving approximately 125 vulnerable individuals residing in Solana Beach and the adjacent communities with their legal needs.
“The Community Law Project is honored to once again be a recipient of funding from the Solana Beach Fund,” said Dana Sisitsky, CLP’s Executive Director. “Thanks to years of generous funding from the Solana Beach Fund, CLP has helped residents of Solana Beach to become better informed about their legal rights. CLP also provides residents with the security of knowing that there is somewhere safe and convenient where the most vulnerable in the community can go for confidential and reliable legal information.”
As well as the clinics, CLP also provides periodic workshops and presentations on topics of interest. Volunteer attorneys are frequently available for personal consultation following the workshops and presentations.
