Experience

Pro Bono Services Provided to Connecticut Nonprofit

Jennifer Kleiner and Cheryl Johnson provided pro bono services to Homes with Hope to handle a transaction between the organization and Project Return, which both have a common mission of providing a wide range of supportive services for adolescents and young women in crisis, including those that are homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless. For many years, Project Return served the needs of these young women under the care of Connecticut's Department of Children & Families through various programs. Due to changes in Connecticut child welfare policies, punctuated by the elimination of funding for long-standing programs, Project Return shifted its focus from serving the needs of adolescent girls and young women in crisis to providing supportive living programs for young women between the ages of 18 and 24 years old. This transaction involved the contribution of Project Return's assets to Homes with Hope so that the programs can continue through Homes with Hope.
