The Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association hosted its 13th Annual Breakfast of Champions event on Nov. 19. It was a virtual celebration this year to help raise crucial funds to help children and families receive the legal support they deserve. The current economic, medical and housing crises have created a never-before-seen need for the group’s services. The event featured encouraging words from community leaders and former clients.

More than 700 clients facing foreclosure and eviction have asked for housing assistance this year. Thousands of clients have avoided homelessness through the support of the The Legal Aid Society.

An outpouring from donors supported this year’s fundraising effort.
