Everett, WA – After an incredible fun-filled evening at Camp Justice 2017, Snohomish County Legal Services invites you to go BACK TO CAMP with us on Saturday, March 3! This casual and “campy” gala event will be at the gorgeous rustic Floral Hall in Forest Park (802 E. Mukilteo Blvd, Everett), and will include delicious dinner, a silent auction, dessert dash, beer and wine service, special guest speakers, and live music by SkyHook. This is pure campy fun and you do not want to miss this party. Come dressed in your favorite casual camping gear to really get into the spirit of Back to Camp 2018. SCLS is grateful for all the community businesses that came together to sponsor this event, including Camp Leader Wilson Smith Cochran Dickerson.

In Snohomish County, thousands of low-income and working families face civil legal problems without legal help with devastating consequences. The 2015 Washington State Supreme Court Civil Legal Needs Study found that 70% of those living in poverty in Washington State experience at least one civil legal problem per year, and the average number of problems per household is nine – from domestic violence to housing instability to critical issues senior citizens face. Civil legal aid programs like SCLS have been proven to make a difference in the lives of those struggling with poverty who are able to access help. SCLS helped nearly 1,700 individual clients in 2017, a 143% increase from 2009, but there are still thousands more families in need. SCLS helps make access to justice a reality – access that would not be possible without the support of the community. Help us stop the cycle of poverty in Snohomish County, one client at a time.
