Carla Testani, President of the Wayne County Family Law Bar Association, released the following for the Press:

The Wayne County Family Law Bar Association is kicking off their annual summer charity drive that culminates with a Golf Outing and Dinner for Charity on September 18th, 2015 at Dearborn Hills Golf Course. This year the named Charities are Growth Works and the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic.

Growth Works is a private, non-profit organization serving youth and families in Western Wayne County since 1971. Since its founding, the agency has continued to design innovative programs to meet the needs and challenges of the community. One of their main programs within Family Services is Supervised Parenting and Visitation services. Trained monitors observe court-ordered supervised parenting time.

This program allows the visitation to take place in a supportive and family friendly environment. Toys and games are available to enhance building positive parent-child relationships. The child is never left alone with the visiting parent, and the monitor assures that rules and limits for contact and interaction are followed. In most cases supervised parenting is ordered by a Family Court. However families may participate voluntarily if both parents agree.

The William Booth Legal Aid Clinic provides free legal services to people who live at or below national poverty guidelines. They handle mostly family law and landlord/tenant issues. They do not handle lawsuits. The Clinic focuses on Domestic Relations and Family Law, Landlord-Tenant Relations, Employment and Workplace Law, and How to Choose a Lawyer.

Contributions to the Charity of your choice can be mailed directly to the WCFLBA President, Carla Testani, 33900 Schoolcraft Road, Livonia, MI, 48154 on or before September 18, 2015. Just name the Charity as recipient.
