Impact and Programs
In 2018, our Legal Care Program served 550 clients with 680 different legal matters, an increase of 25% over those served in 2017.
In 2019, of the anticipated 600 Minnesotans affected by cancer who receive legal care from a Cancer Legal Care staff or volunteer attorney and complete a follow up survey/interview, 50% will report a resulting positive change in their financial stability and/or emotional well-being.
In 2019, 70% of the active volunteer attorneys completing our survey will volunteer to take on another pro bono matter for a Cancer Legal Care client.
