On August 8, supporters, advocates, and partners will gather together to enjoy dinner and entertainment on the Detroit Riverboat to party with a purpose, supporting changing the narrative in our communities, and families across Metro Detroit.
“Equal justice for all should not be a slogan but a reality for all those who cannot afford legal counsel and representation. Your support will truly help those who need it the most”, said, Leonard Sanchez, Executive Director of Neighborhood Legal Services. “Please join us for an evening of fun and entertainment as we cruise the Detroit River”.
The mission of NLSM is to serve the citizens of Michigan with quality professional housing counseling, legal and advocacy services by removing barriers that prevent individuals from reaching their fullest potential. The agency serves vulnerable individuals, fragile families, and students in more than 60 schools and communities through the Children’s Education Division.

Target populations served by NLSM represent the promise of our communities and the future of humankind.
