A special note for BLS Volunteers from the Honorable Laurel M. Isicoff about the BLS Veterans’ Financial Literacy Project
The Veteran’s Financial Literacy Program (the “VFLP”) is a joint endeavor of the Business Law Section’s Pro Bono Committee and Financial Literacy Task Force and Mission United Broward and Legal Services of Greater Miami. The Pro Bono Committee’s mission is to have one hundred percent participation by its members in pro bono. To that end, the Pro Bono Committee is always searching for opportunities for its members who do not want to “go to court.” The VFLP provides this opportunity, because none of our volunteers needs to know more than how to use a credit card, a bank account and what is necessary to balance a budget.
The Business Law Section’s Financial Literacy Task Force is proud to announce the launching of their statewide Veterans Financial Literacy Program to take place this Fall 2023 in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville and Pensacola in observance of National Veterans and Military Families Month. You can help veterans across Florida learn to make educated financial decisions and avoid pitfalls. We would very much love for you to participate in this program. If you have not already done so in the past, and are willing to participate in this worthy cause, please feel free to enroll in our database for the BLS Veterans Financial Literacy Program here.
Feel free to call or write to me for more information, questions or concerns.
Thanks in advance for your help to our veteran community!
