Volunteering During COVID-19

Dear GDVLP Volunteers,


We are so very grateful to you, the valued volunteers of the Greater Dayton Volunteer Lawyers Project (GDVLP).  We hope you are all doing well during these difficult times. We are all in this together and staying safe from COVID-19 is the priority for everyone.  

The legal needs of our clients have significantly increased because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For that reason, we need help from our volunteers now more than ever. 

As you continue to generously take on clients, the GDVLP wants you to know that we will do whatever we can to make you most comfortable. If you would prefer for staff and clients to wear masks, we can wear masks. If you would prefer to communicate with clients via zoom instead of in-person, GDVLP can and will make clinics/appointments virtual. We are very grateful for your continued willingness to provide those who wouldn’t otherwise have access to legal services with those services and we want to do all that we can to support you.

Please contact us if you can help. We can be reached by calling the office number and leaving a message (937-461-3857) or by emailing us at gdvlp@gdvlp.org.  We appreciate all you do. We are thinking of you during this trying time and look forward to working with you.  If we can be of any help to you, please be sure to contact us.
