Justice & Diversity Center: Legal Services Program
The legal services programs of the Justice & Diversity Center of The Bar Association of San Francisco (JDC) provide pro bono legal and related social services to low-income and homeless San Francisco residents and to nonprofit organizations that serve these communities.
