VLN is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be making changes and cancellations beginning Monday, March 16. Walk-in intake is suspended indefinitely beginning Tuesday, March 17. As things change with our partner firms and volunteers, the courts and community organizations, and as updated information becomes available, we will make changes as necessary to our scheduled services. Please check our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for the most current information. This blog will be updated on a less-frequent but more in-depth basis.
To the extent services are available, all our clients, volunteers and partners are urged to stay home if they are sick, have symptoms (such as a cough or fever) or have been exposed to COVID-19. Anyone who does engage in VLN services is urged to take precaution and practice good illness-avoidance hygiene: wash hands thoroughly and often, avoid touching your face, and cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unfortunate situation. Take care.
