Herring Law Group is proud to have facilitated a $5,000 grant from the AAML Foundation for our signature non-profit, Casa Serena. Greg, who is deeply involved in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (aaml.org), identified the funding opportunity. HLG’s Executive Director, Erin Schaden, helped reel it in. Erin also serves as the Chair of Casa Serena’s Board of Directors.
Casa Serena’s mission is to “help women and their families recover from addiction by providing evidence-based treatment services while building community, instilling self-determination, and empowering them with educational opportunities and financial literacy.” Its professional staff includes Marriage and Family Therapists, Certified Addiction Treatment Counselors and Early Childhood Educators. Casa Serena offers multiple properties, including Oliver House. The residence is Santa Barbara’s only treatment facility where mothers recovering from addiction can reunite and live with their children. See casaserena.org.
The funds will be used toward establishing an onsite family law clinic for the women served by Casa Serena. This has been a longtime dream of the organization’s. HLG is proud to have made it happen, and we will continue to support the clinic’s formation.
