Make a Meaningful Impact as a PFJ Advocate

Hiring for PFJ’s 2018 Advocate class is now closed. We will begin recruiting for our next Advocate class in January 2020.

Low-income families are faced with enough challenges without the additional burdens that can result from contact with the justice system or other bureaucracies.  PFJ Advocates make a direct impact for clients by providing "pre-legal" assistance to help fight eviction, maintain employment and licenses, retrieve seized property, get access to health insurance and food stamps, and more.  If a client needs legal representation, you will have the ability to connect them to our network of pro bono counsel and work collaboratively with the client's legal team to achieve their goals.
