This session will explore how legal services programs can provide effective, efficient, and impactful services to clients and client communities by powerfully partnering with other systems, service providers, and stakeholders. Collaboration models, best practices, and resources will be shared – and attendees given a chance to apply lessons learned to their own situations. Examples of cross-system collaboration will be reviewed, including how interdisciplinary teams in Ohio fight elder abuse and exploitation; how a “Plan Ahead & Protect Yourself” project empowers elders to protect their legal rights, safety, assets, and self-determination; and how multi-disciplinary collective impact projects in the Dayton, Ohio, area provide new ways to better help clients protect their legal rights and fight poverty.
