Project Homeless Connect wins award from Colorado Lawyers Committee
ACC Board Member Len Segreti Honored
The Colorado Lawyers Committee held its 29th Annual Meeting at the Denver Marriott City Center on Tuesday, May 20, 2008. Over 450 attorneys and community leaders were in attendance.
The Project Homeless Connect Team was honored with the 2007 Team of the Year Award: Tim Macdonald and Susan Cole (Arnold & Porter LLP), Peter Schwartz (Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP), Len Segreti (Qwest Law Department) and Alice Norman (Denver Municipal Indigent Defense Counsel). This group organized and provided leadership for the legal component to the City of Denver’s Project Homeless Connect, an effort which at least twice a year links almost 1,000 homeless individuals to legal information, medical services and resources for public benefits, housing, employment and other valuable services.
The Colorado Lawyers Committee is a 30-year-old nonprofit, nonpartisan consortium of 50 Denver-area law firms dedicated to providing and increasing opportunities for children, the poor and other disadvantaged communities through high impact pro bono work. The Colorado Lawyers Committee currently has more than 15 Task Forces working on projects in the areas of poverty and public benefits, civil rights, education, immigration, community development and criminal law.
ACC would like to thank the most recent group of volunteers for their hard work at the May 9th Project Homeless Connect event:
