RALEIGH — Members of Campbell Law School’s Blanchard Community Law Clinic (BCLC)  teamed up again with Oak City Cares to help Raleigh residents, many of whom are unhoused, on Thursday, Sept. 21.

This collaborative initiative brought together legal expertise and community support to provide valuable assistance to individuals seeking guidance on housing.

During the second annual “Ask a Lawyer” event, clinic students consulted with those seeking legal help. The first 20 residents to attend the event were guaranteed a spot to ask questions, ensuring personalized attention and support under the supervision of a licensed attorney.

Oak City Cares has established itself as a vital resource for the Raleigh community, particularly among those experiencing homelessness. This public-private partnership is dedicated to empowering community members in need through trust-building relationships and access to coordinated services aimed at enhancing their ability to secure safe and stable housing.

“The event serves as a testament to the commitment of both Campbell Law School and Oak City Cares to address critical legal issues affecting vulnerable populations in Raleigh,” said BCLC Director Rick Glazier. 

Oak City Cares is a hub for connecting individuals and families, who are at risk of, or are experiencing homelessness, to coordinated services that create a path to stable housing and renewed hope.
