Since our establishment in 1990, the VLP has been housed in a 450 square foot office at the Brooklyn Bar Association. After years of steady growth, we were bursting at the seams and simply needed larger quarters! We will be moving to a 900 square foot office at 44 Court Street with more space for clients, staff, and volunteers. We are fortunate to be able to remain in downtown Brooklyn with easy access to public transportation and the courts. Though we are relocating, our mission remains the same – to help the underserved and to ensure equal access to justice for all. We thank you for all you do for the VLP and hope we can count on your continued support!
Here’s how you can support the VLP in this exciting transition:
We are 25 years old and getting our own place! After years of steady growth, our move to 44 Court Street allows us more space for clients, staff, and volunteers. We are thrilled with the expansion, and we are asking for help to offset the cost of rent. Our goal is to raise our first year’s rent – every donation counts, regardless of the amount. Please make a tax-deductible donation to support the VLP’s Raise the Rent initiative today and watch the thermometer rise as we get closer to reaching our goal!
We are raising funds to cover our moving expenses and things we’ll need in the new space like furniture and new technology. Our goal is to raise $75,000 in one year. We hope you will consider becoming a permanent fixture in our new space by making a contribution to our 44 Court Campaign!
Below is the floor plan of our new space. Be sure to like us on Facebook so you can stay up to date with the progress of our office!
