Legal Education and Victim Empowerment project, or The L.E.A.V.E., will allow Legal Services of North Florida to hire a staff attorney for one year to develop enhanced advocacy and education tools to support victims of violence and bullying within our community. 

We can’t say enough how rewarding the implementation of this project has been. We hear it from our partners. We hear it from our clients. We hear it from our staff. We always know that there are people who need help and, for any number of reasons, don’t feel safe enough, confident enough, or hopeful enough, to ask for it. We see and hear that this project has given some the hope, confidence and safety to reach out and ask. Thank you for giving us the chance to be a part of that change for them.
