The Shreveport Bar Foundation also operates the Pro Bono Project (PBP) in Caddo and Bossier Parishes (f/k/a Northwest Louisiana Pro Bono Project). The Pro Bono Project provides free legal assistance by volunteer attorneys in civil matters for qualified indigent and low-income Caddo and Bossier Parish residents. Lawyers in private practice volunteer through the Pro Bono Project to take cases for individual clients who qualify based on Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. Hundreds of people with serious legal problems that affect their health, safety, shelter or income are assisted by volunteer attorneys annually. More information is available by calling 318-221-8104.
