Volunteering with New Mexico Christian Legal Aid
Why Should I Volunteer?
The Bible instructs Christians to care for the sick and needy. Attorneys and other members of the legal community have unique knowledge, skills and abilities to address issues that significantly impact the poor.
The activities of NMCLA provide an organized network for Christians in the legal community to serve the homeless and needy. Volunteers enjoy the company and support of other Christians to reaffirm the values of their faith in their daily roles as advocates and counselors.
“From everyone who has been given much, much shall be required; and the one who has been entrusted with much, much more shall be asked.”
How Do I Volunteer?
Christian attorneys and other volunteers who would like to volunteer their time and talents can call Board Officers for more information. See the Contact Us page for contact information.
“If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.”
