Urgent Need for Volunteers - Your Help is Needed to Keep EPIC Going!

The Eviction Prevention and Intervention Coalition ("EPIC") has gotten off the ground with great success.  We continue to receive requests from other bar associations looking to launch similar programs of their own.  Both the MBA and the MBF are enjoying widespread recognition for our support of this program, and our participation has been a positive endeavor for all involved.  Unfortunately, getting the program off the ground was the easy part, and we now must call on each of you to help ensure its continued success.

The MBA provides pro bono attorneys to EPIC on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. This is a high-impact/low-commitment opportunity, and no prior landlord/tenant experience is necessary. Click on the button below to register and/or contact Nancy Walsh at nancywalsh@montgomerybar.org to arrange for convenient training and a FREE CLE-credit.
