Luke’s Place serves women needing family support who have been subjected to abuse and the frontline workers and lawyers who assist them. Located in Oshawa, it supports women and their children through the family law process. It provides both direct services and systemic support, both in the Durham region, and provincially. The Catalyst grant will enable the organization to expand access to summary legal advice at its Oshawa-based pro bono clinic, improve upon and expand its virtual legal clinic to rural southwestern Ontario (currently, in partnership with over 20 women-serving organizations the virtual clinic serves urban and rural areas in northwestern and northeastern Ontario), update its legal information resources and training materials, and evaluate the overall impact of its work.
