In my recent end-of-year letter, I mentioned that JICSL had been the engine behind the formation of a new pro bono legal service in Indian River County, called Access To Justice. JICSL provided start up capital along with United Way, the JI Foundation, the Kahle Foundation and a few individual donors. The program was presented to the County Commissioners on May 16th by Jeff Smith, Clerk of the Court, and received approval for annual County funding. The program is expected to “go live” later this summer.
