Two excellent law related organizations, which have received Bar Foundation grants in the past, were honored during the recent WV Non Profit Association’s (WVNPA) Annual Conference for their outstanding performance.
Pictured above, on the left, is Adrienne Worthy, the Executive Director of Legal Aid of WV, and, on the right, is Shiloh Woodard, the Executive Director of Child Protect of Mercer County.
The WVNPA presents its prestigious Award of Excellence to non profit entities in the state which successfully serve their clients. Being recipients of this award clearly demonstrates the positive impact that these two organizations have had on WV’s men, women and children during their time of need.
Legal Aid received the first grant that the Bar Foundation ever presented in 2004 to assist in a statewide legal needs survey. Then, a few years later, a second grant was made to support LAWV’s statewide technology network.
Child Protect received the second grant, also awarded in 2004, in its area of expertise of child abuse prevention. Over the years, additional grants have been provided to Child Protect for child victim forensic interviews, counseling services for child victims of crime and for child character building.
Congratulations to LAWV and to Child Protect for receiving these well deserved honors!
Thanks to YOU for supporting the Bar Foundation’s Grants Program!
