(Treasure Coast Job Coalition Award, 2002)
  • Secretarial volunteers assist secretaries organizing case files for attorney review as well as preparation for trial.
  • High School students looking to fulfill volunteer hours for the Bright Futures Scholarship can benefit from this opportunity to be of assistance and to learn about the justice system.
  • Offender Re-Entry Program volunteers help prepare clients for re-entry into their community, upon release from jail.
