Help needed with the HELP Clinic and DATA

Twice a month the Richland County Bar Public Service Committee conducts the HELP Clinic to provide legal advice to the local homeless population. Law Students are encouraged to assist by conducting the intake interviews. The HELP Clinic is from 8:30-10 on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.
Contact the Pro Bono Program and we will send you the information and link for signing up.
As part of the HELP Clinic, the Intake Forms are sent to the Pro Bono Program for data compilation.  This is a place where two volunteers are needed.  The good news! This can be done anytime you want to come to the building.  We can make the files to be entered and the database available to you! evenings, Sunday afternoon, whatever works for you.  A simple matter of giving you access to the Pro Bono Program office if during non-regular work hours.
we have a bit of a backlog so help is needed ASAP. Once school starts we will only have 10-15 intake forms a month to enter.  Does not take long but I can’t say that it is exciting but definitely appreciated!
The data we compile helps the Public Service Committee plan for future efforts and to keep track of the issues clients are facing
