President’s Greeting

Attorney Laurence Kaldor, President of the Valley Community Legal Foundation.

The Valley Community Legal Foundation (VCLF) is the charitable arm of the San Fernando Valley Bar association. The foundation was created for and exists to assist law related projects, battered and abused spouses and needy children and students that are considering law as a career. The view CLF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and has a tax identification number of 95–3397334.

Many persons do not think the charitable deeds and attorneys and their bar associations go together. One of the purposes of the foundation is to not only assist the support of attorneys, corporations, businesses, and individuals but to also demonstrate that attorneys can work together for the betterment of the San Fernando Valley.

Over the years the VCL F has funded many were the projects and organizations such as haven hills, the “teddy bear” program in juvenile court, awarded grants and scholarships to students and other such worthwhile efforts.

For those of you that go to court, you will notice that there are children’s waiting rooms in the Van Nuys and San Fernando Court houses. The VCL F was instrumental in the creation of these safe Havens for children. Imagine the stress placed on the child who accompanies a parent to family law court regarding proceedings file by one parent against the other. In the past, the child had to either wait in the hallway by themselves or in the court room and listen to his or her parents tell Judge “bad things” about the other parent. Thanks to the children’s waiting rooms, the child can be left in a supervised room and not have to be subjected to the bickering of their parents.
