Community Legal Aid was very fortunate to have renowned muralist Caleb Neelon donate his time and talent to paint CLA's Worcester office children's waiting room. He took the room from "blah" to astounding in less than a day!
CLA is proud to announce that in September of 2013, it was the recipient of a $5,000 grant from the American Bar Association Section of Litigation through its Justice Assistance Fund award program to help fund its "Community Legal Aid Development Planning Project."
This month, the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) honors Community Legal Aid (CLA) Managing Attorney Jennifer K. Dieringer as a recipient of the MBA’s “Community Service Award.” The award is given to attorneys who have performed acts of outstanding public service within their community.
