Volunteer Opportunities

The Northwest Justice Project welcomes the help of volunteer attorneys who are admitted to practice in Washington State.

The Foreclosure Prevention Unit (FPU) helps low to moderate income Washington homeowners facing foreclosure of their primary place of residence.  We represent homeowners in loan modification negotiation, mediation under the Foreclosure Fairness Act and litigation to protect and enforce homeownership rights under state and federal law.  Volunteering for the FPU provides an opportunity to help save the homes of distressed families, which has an impact far beyond the equity or market value involved, and even beyond the obvious value of maintaining a roof over one’s head. Read more about the FPU Volunteer Program.

CLEAR, located in Seattle, is the statewide legal aid telephone hotline that provides intake, advice and brief services to callers from around the state.  Volunteer attorneys take calls in the morning, advising clients on family law matters. Read more about the CLEAR volunteer program.
