Late posting these “before & afters” but we had the opportunity to help our friends at Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic with some paint updates this winter. Big thanks to Sherwin-Williams Indianapolis for donating the paint and to Pablo, Sebastian, Antonio, Manuel, & Ismael for doing the work! We love the great ways the clinic offers legal help to those who are severely underserved in our city.
THIS TAX SEASON COULD GET TRICKY! Advanced child tax credits. Stimulus payments. An understaffed IRS. Customer service issues. TurboTax and H&R Block opting out of IRS Free File. This tax season could be tricky for a number of reasons, so here's what you need to know to make sure you get your money.

Thank you to Indiana Legal Services, Inc. and Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic for speaking with us!

Erin Lisa Hall joined the Clinic as our new executive director on June 1st of this year. She believes God placed us on her heart in the early 2000s, when she was a law student member of the Christian Legal Society. Though her time in state government posed restrictions on volunteering for the Clinic, Erin intersected with the organization on various occasions over the years. She also worked alongside the Clinic’s mission through roles as an advocate for Hoosiers with disabilities and a compliance educator in regards to caring for marginalized populations.

In March 2022, the Holy Spirit clearly led Erin to join the Clinic team. With over 17 years of program management experience, a background in statewide training and networking, and a heart for justice and mercy work, she was appointed as our new executive director. Now four months in, Erin is thrilled to see fruit from her efforts to expand relationships with partners statewide who have a common interest in promoting legal access for Indiana’s most vulnerable.

Our hybrid Justice for All Celebration on October 6th is the first major opportunity to hear Erin speak about her passion and vision for the Clinic. If you would like to meet her in person, make sure to introduce yourself during the cocktail hour or VIP Reception at the Crane Bay Event Center in downtown Indianapolis. Erin is eager to meet you and share how the sky is the limit when it comes to the people we can serve in partnership with our community.

An Interview with Wendy Freeland, Paralegal at the Expungement Help Desk — Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic 21/09/2022

An Interview with Wendy Freeland, Paralegal at the Expungement Help Desk — Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic

Today on the blog we have an interview with Wendy Freeland, Paralegal at our Expungement Help Desk. Check it out!

"Before working here, I didn’t realize what an obstacle a criminal record really is. It’s hard to make any forward progress. It’s a wonder they don’t give up. Working here, you become a more compassionate person, because you’re exposed to peoples’ stories that you never would have known anything about."

The Expungement Help Desk is open to walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am – 4pm at the Gold Building at 151 N. Delaware St., Suite 550, Indianapolis, IN.

OR on Thursday afternoons from 12pm – 4pm at the Community Justice Campus at 675 Justice Way, Legal Resource Center.

We also have phone appointments available. For more information on the Clinic’s Expungement Help Desk, visit: https://www.nclegalclinic.org/re-entry-justice
