'Tis the season for giving
In this season of giving, let us remember those seniors who are economically disadvantaged and alone.


Please help FBLC spread holiday cheer to elderly residents at Fort Bend Gardens, a low-income senior community, by making a donation today. FBLC needs donations to provide gift cards and coffee mugs as gifts for the Seniors and refreshments for a Holiday Party held for the Seniors. The Holiday Party is an afternoon of caring and a wonderful way to give back to your community.

The past Holiday Parties brought much happiness to the elderly men and women, many of whom have no one to visit them or brighten their days during this festive time of the year.

FBLC has proudly hosted Holiday Parties for the seniors who reside at Fort Bend Gardens for several years. If you would like to make a donation for the Holiday Party, click on the "make a donation" button. On the PayPal screen in the section "special instructions to the seller", please enter Senior Holiday Cheer so we'll know that your donation is earmarked for this purpose. Of course, we also accept checks, cash and credit cards. You may securely fax your credit card information to us by filling out the Holiday Cheer Donation credit card authorization form; the information is not shared or retained. Thank you in advance on behalf of the people we serve for your unfailing generosity to the low-income residents of Fort Bend County.

About Us
Fort Bend Lawyers Care (FBLC) was founded in 2006 by the Fort Bend County Bar Association to respond to the growing legal needs of our community's low-income residents. FBLC is a non-profit corporation that provides legal services to low-income citizens by coordinating a process to allow volunteer attorneys to accept legal cases of qualified clients. Prior to establishing Fort Bend Lawyers Care, there was no
in-county pro bono organization available to assist low-income residents of Fort Bend County.
Our Mission
It is the mission of Fort Bend Lawyers Care to provide low-income Fort Bend County residents with equal access to justice through volunteer lawyers.
Pro Bono Legal Assistance Comes to Fort Bend County.
Many times, citizens need answers to legal questions or simple legal advice that can be given over the telephone in just a few moments or, citizens may need a referral to other legal or social service agencies. Fort Bend Lawyers Care has established its monthly Family Law Workshop to fill this important legal need in our community.
