Pro Bono Partners of Georgia has provided legal counsel to our organization, Boys2Men Home & Sanctuary for Youth for the past 15 years. We have consulted them regarding a number of issues including real estate acquisition, IRS concerns, liability/board insurance issues, by-laws, confidential documentation on the youth we've served, employment and volunteer requirements, just to name a few. They have always given B2M the highest quality of legal counsel any organization can obtain cost-free! We truly have been blessed with ProBono Partnership services!
