Leadership Council

The Leadership Council’s purpose is to increase financial and volunteer resources for LACLJ’s core services and raise awareness of LACLJ among leaders in the legal, business and philanthropic communities.

As ambassadors of the organization, Leadership Council members have the opportunity to volunteer their time, talents, professional expertise and resources to advocate for LACLJ’s work to empower low-income families in crisis. Members also have the opportunity to develop new relationships and network with their peers who share in their passion for service.
