Project Overview

We need help creating a nonprofit strategic plan. We've been run entirely by volunteers and have had incredible success in reaching our client base. We need assistance creating a concise plan that helps us build capacity to become a sustainable organization that disaster victims can rely on.
We are at a crises level in Louisiana, with vulnerable people suffering from a myriad of legal issues. There is no provider for disaster legal services in Louisiana, and our volunteer group is the only reliable source for information and guidance. The work/ help you would be giving would directly be helping those who need it most.
We are a full-formed nonprofit. We have an Executive and Legal Director and a working board. We just received our first grant to provide free community clinics down in the Bayou. All of us are on board and ready to give it our all. We are disaster victims ourselves, and our neighbors are suffering. The work we (you as the volunteer and us here at ELR) will be implemented in real-time.

Nonprofit Overview

Emergency Legal Responders (ELR) is a Louisiana-based organization founded in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Our team is rooted in our experience working on cases stemming from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Ida to Covid-19 to the BLM protests. We are attorneys, advocates, and community members who have worked for years to provide direct legal services to those impacted by emergency legal issues.

We provide direct legal aid through "boots on the ground" legal clinics, create tailored legal information slides, and train probono volunteers to help the communities they live in.

Legal emergencies are natural, social and economic. We are here to fill the "justice gap" that so many people in Louisiana live in.
