Project Homeless Connect (PHC) recently honored the Justice & Diversity Center with its award for Outstanding Service Area.

The City of San Francisco partners with nonprofits four to six times a year to hold PHC events, with each event offering numerous services to thousands of homeless people.

At a volunteer recognition celebration in October, PHC honored JDC for its free walk-in legal clinic held at every PHC event. JDC’s volunteer attorneys give free legal advice and referrals in numerous areas of civil and criminal law.

Two dedicated, long-time volunteers joined JDC in accepting the award: Frank Rodezno, a San Francisco criminal defense attorney who has volunteered at PHC since it began in 2004; and Rachel Williams, pro bono counsel at Morrison & Foerster, a volunteer since 2005.

JDC deeply appreciates the enthusiastic, invaluable volunteers who help us serve San Francisco’s homeless residents at every PHC, through both the Legal Clinic and California ID Clinic.
