Pontiac and Eastside Clinics to Reopen in August

About a month ago, the Southwest Legal Clinic reopened. Meeting with clients during a pandemic means that things have been different there, but it has been great to be back with people in person again.

We are excited to be reopening our Pontiac and Eastside clinics again soon!

Our clients are among the most vulnerable, the least likely to get treatment if they are sick and are likely unable to take time off work for themselves or to care for a sick family member. As we reopen clinics, we take care to prioritize protecting their health.

The Eastside Legal Clinic will reopen on August 13.
The Pontiac Legal Clinic will reopen on August 18

We are cooperating with the facilities that host our clinics and putting what we have learned at Southwest to work to be sure that we are following all reasonable safety precautions.

These precautions allow us to limit the number of people gathered in the clinic at any one time. Though it may not be convenient, we believe these precautions will help limit the spread of COVID-19 among our communities.

We are also cleaning regularly and keep hand sanitizer available around all meeting spaces.

Appointments will be available at the Eastside and Pontiac clinics starting next week.

The Southwest Detroit Immigrant and Refugee Center provides free and low-cost legal services to those who need them most in the Detroit area, with a focus on recent immigrants and refugees.

We were founded in 2014 by Kevin Piecuch, our Executive Director and principal attorney, to help meet the great need for quality legal services in underserved communities. We believe that everyone deserves justice regardless of your country of origin, the color of your skin, or your ability to afford an attorney.
