How to Help
Current SOLACE requests for assistance are listed here. Members of the SOLACE Network also will receive emails alerting them when a member is in need. However, needs for assistance often are often sent to the members of the SOLACE Network best suited to be able to fulfill the request based on their geography, expertise, or affiliation.
Note: SOLACE primarily focuses on providing nonfinancial support for members of Michigan's legal community and their families. In extremely limited situations and after reasonable due diligence, information may be shared with the SOLACE Network regarding financial need. The fund listed above was created by the member in need and her family and is not operated or monitored by the State Bar of Michigan.
