How CVLC Works
CVLC Works in Medical Legal Partnership with the VA
CVLC is co-located and staffed on a daily basis at the Errera Community Care Center, meaning we are right down the hall for 3600 veterans a year who get services from the VA.
This co-location means easy access to free legal assistance, without any transportation or scheduling barriers. This also creates unique opportunities for multi-disciplinary teamwork between VA social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists and peer specialists and CVLC staff and volunteer lawyers, paralegals and law students. CVLC relies on the volunteerism of hundreds of attorneys across Connecticut annually to help leverage its resources.
