Message from Our Director

Looking back on 2020 and the way the world we all live in so quickly changed I am at the same time reminded of one of many things that did not change – the need to provide access to justice for all regardless of their ability pay. From helping parents navigate the complexity of custody issues to enabling families to keep a roof over their heads, what we are providing to those in need across the Lowcountry is something that cannot be measured in dollars. Our impact is measured in the independence, relief and security that our representation provides to families and children in distress.

I am also deeply humbled that after having served the organization as its Executive Attorney for the past five years, that our Board of Directors recently placed their trust and confidence in me with my appointment as the organization’s new Executive Director upon Brad Zervas’s retirement. While I have big shoes to fill, I am confident that the road ahead for us abounds with opportunities to expand our program’s outreach and services throughout the Lowcountry.

For over twenty years we have been working hard to make sure we are meeting the needs of those who might benefit from our services most. Having impacted thousands of families since our founding, we move forward knowing that our commitment and passion for our mission will endure well into the 21st century.

Today we move forward knowing we are truly blessed to have the support of our community and all of the local and state-wide organizations that generously support our mission.

Anne Caywood
Executive Director and Attorney
