Rebecca spent several years working at The Bronx Defenders, where she represented low-income clients in court. Through her clients, she was able to appreciate the enormous difference that a small amount of money could make on the outcome of a case or help her clients withstand the added financial burdens of court involvement. In response to these needs, The Bronx Defenders, through its Client Emergency Fund, gives small one-time grants to its clients to cover key neccessities. In the past, these small donations have provided things such as school supplies, baby formula and food, a reliable alarm clock, a winter coat, or buying a bed for a child returning home from foster care.
There is no overhead administrative costs taken from this fund, so 100% of every donation goes straight to the clients.
We appreciate any donations you are able to make to this important cause!
