PILP Delivers Lesson on Public Benefits to Federal Probationers

As our readers may have heard, our current class of Public Interest Leaders (PILP) is holding a series of workshops as part of the Community Reentry Readiness Program. The most recent session shed light on government benefits for low-income individuals in Massachusetts. Current PILP member Julie Devanthéry (Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School) and Ellen Shachter (Cambridge and Somerville Legal Services) conducted the session for 24 federal probationers from the CARE and RESTART programs.

Julie Devanthéry (Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School) and Ellen Shachter (Cambridge and Somerville Legal Services) lead the third module of the Community Reentry Readiness Program on public benefits for federal probationers.
