Director’s Message

December 14, 2020

Dear Friends,

Today, as I write this I am truly hopeful that our country will soon be on its way to a monumental recovery with vaccines now on the way. I also must pause to give thanks to all those essential frontline workers that have given of themselves to tirelessly care for our nation illuminating the inherent courage we have as country. And now, reminding us that while we are nearing a change in the tide we must all do our utmost to protect others and to have confidence that this too will pass – but only with our help.

When one considers those among us impacted the most by the pandemic’s grip, they are the poor, those of color, the elderly and millions of others who can least afford such interruptions in their lives. They are those for who the virus has indelibly forever changed their lives, shattered their families and in many cases delivered consequences that will be hard to recover from. Frankly, they are the very families that Lowcountry Legal Volunteers serves.

With that said, we are all hoping and praying that 2021 will provide some much-needed relief. In the meantime, we will remain ever vigilant in our efforts to ensure that equal access to justice remains at the center of our work. Whether it be protecting our clients from unfair housing practices, securing child support, shielding families from the consequences of domestic violence, or, liberating those trapped in dysfunctional relationships, we will continue to serve as we have now for over two decades.

In closing, if you are in the position to help support our efforts, please consider joining us and the many others who have made a year ending donation to help support families in need across the Lowcountry.

Best Wishes for a Brighter Year to Come,

 

Brad Zervas
Executive Director
