Nonprofits Unify to Connect Legal Services

Jan 14, 2020

The Health Consumer Alliance (HCA) is a technology solution unifying its ten independent local nonprofit partners across California to connect its free legal services to all consumers in all languages, regardless of income level. HCA was operating with a homegrown solution that created a data integrity problem with collecting and reporting. With ten organizations collecting various pieces of information, data reporting was constant, manual, and often unreliable as individual organizations made local changes to reporting fields. Working with the TechBridge team, HCA leveraged JusticeServer™, a case management and volunteer attorney portal solution designed and used by legal services organizations. Together they customized the platform to provide them with an improved user interface, easy and efficient data entry, and enhanced data integrity. JusticeServer also allowed them to customize reporting statewide, regionally, and locally.

One of our challenges is the need to collect data on multiple object levels. We need to be able to see this collectively, as well as individually. The JusticeServer team has been very creative in solving this data challenge that other platforms were unable to solve. To be able to see the data at this problem level opens up the opportunity to see a much more accurate picture of the healthcare challenges.

— Jack Dailey, Health Consumer Alliance Coordinator, Legal Aid Society of San Diego, Inc.

In collaboration with the Greater Richmond Bar Foundation, the Legal Aid Justice Center, and the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society, TechBridge built JusticeServer on the platform to leverage the latest technology. The resulting platform aided in providing pro bono legal services to low-income clients. JusticeServer has been chosen by legal nonprofits nationwide and provides NPOs like Bay Area Legal Aid, Eviction Defense Collaborative, Legal Aid at Work, Volunteer Legal Services Project, Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network, Mosaic Georgia, and many other justice nonprofits with modern, efficient, and cost-effective legal services management.
