Seeking legal representation for low income client

Hi all!I am a 2014 grad currently working as a Family Advocate for the HomeStep Family Program in Seattle. We provide two years of transitional housing and supportive case management to families experiencing homelessness. I am reaching out on behalf of one of my clients, a wonderful single mom of a 12 year old son, who is seeking direct pro-bono or low-bono legal representation. Due to her extremely limited income, and massive health barriers (she is currently battling a 3rd recurrence of breast cancer), she has been unable to obtain the legal resources that would help her challenge her ex-husband (who has significantly more resources at his disposal) in court. She is hoping to undo the effects of previous court decisions regarding child support and other financial supports in order to provide her family with the resources they need to regain economic stability. If you or anyone you know might be able to provide pro-bono or low-bono family law representation to a family in need, please let me know! I am also available via email at ehayes@compasshousingalliance.org.Best,Erica
