Mission Statement

 

The Women's Bar Foundation (WBF) advances social and economic justice by providing low-income women with access to legal representation and a means to be heard. The WBF recruits and trains volunteer attorneys to address legal issues that disproportionately affect low-income women and their children. Through its pro-bono programs, the WBF educates the legal community about the positive impact that one attorney's work can have on the life of a client at risk.
