The HCLC depends on the time donated by volunteers and the financial contributions donated by our funders and sponsors to pursue access to justice for the underserved in Hampden County. But it goes beyond even that. We strive to foster a culture of philanthropy and volunteerism in the local legal community. By getting involved in our programs, you become a crucial part of that movement. 


Use this guided tool to explore volunteer opportunities for lawyers and non-lawyers, based on your areas of expertise and experience level.


Now, more than ever, the volunteer efforts of attorneys are critical to ensuring access to justice. Whether you have an hour, a day, or more to commit to pro bono work, there is an opportunity at HCLC for you to be a part of meaningful change in the Hampden County community.
