Washoe Legal Services - Renovation Campaign Progress

What Are The Changes?

  • Increase our capacity to serve more clients by adding at least 5 new offices.
  • Create a central entry-way with increased security (this is especially needed since we serve victims of domestic violence).
  • Creating a community room that will be used for workshops, classes, self-help services, clinics, etc. we will also convene the community for community workshops.
  • Creating a small conference room adjacent to a children’s room (may be called the Kids Corner) separated by a soundproof glass window to allow clients to consult privately with WLS staff while still supervising their children. 

What Are The Benefits?

  • A more client-friendly environment that will feel safe, secure and welcoming.
  • Increased security and privacy for clients (this is especially important for victims of domestic violence).
  • An improved Self-Help Center, where individuals can learn how to complete, serve and file forms necessary to represent themselves in court.
  • A healthier, more sustainable building (upgrades to HVAC and lighting will improve energy efficiency and decrease utility costs; replacing interlocking ceiling tile with a grid suspension system to allow easier access for repairs to HVAC, plumbing, etc.).
