South Coast Literacy Council

If you are looking for a little-known but highly deserving charity, we hope you will consider South Coast Literacy Council (SCLC).

We are small - one of the smallest in The Orange County Community Federation - but we put forth a mighty effort. We hope donors will think of us as the little engine that can.
 
SCLC is an all-volunteer educational and charitable non-profit organization serving south Orange County, California.  Our principal mission is to assist adults in acquiring the English language skills they need for daily living; to take advantage of employment opportunities; and to integrate fully into society.
 
With so many needs in our society today, the ability to speak and understand English may not appear to be particularly urgent . . . UNLESS YOU CAN'T DO IT!

- Unless you can't help your child with his school homework

- Unless you can't read your child's report card

- Unless you can't explain your symptoms to the doctor

- Unless you are ridiculed when you ask for help in a store

- Unless you can't fill out an application for the job you need

Through its free classes on listening, speaking, reading and writing English, SCLC is helping to address this critical and growing need in our County. We focus on adults because the need is great. According to the latest estimates by the National Center for Education Statistics, 26% of people over 16 years of age in Orange County lack basic literacy skills compared to 23% for the entire state.  Very few organizations offer English language skills to adults and those that do usually charge a fee; e.g. community colleges.

UCI School of Law Clinics

UCI Law seeks to create the ideal law school for the 21st century by doing the best job of training lawyers for the practice of law at the highest levels of the profession. Practicing law under close supervision and with time for reflection is a fundamental goal of UCI Law curriculum, and the clinical program, ranked No. 13 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, is the most important means by which students achieve this goal.

Students choose one of seven different clinics in which they act as the primary legal representatives of their clients. They work to solve problems facing individual clients and problems that affect a larger community, whether within a neighborhood, city, state, country or the world. In the process, the law students become client-centered, culturally competent, ethical, and effective attorneys. Among the UCI Law Clinics available to the students are the Domestic Violence Clinic (DVC), Community & Economic Development Clinic (CED), and the Veterans Clinic.

The mission of the DVC is to provide transformative legal representation to abuse survivors and their children in Orange County while educating law students to become client-centered, culturally competent, ethical, and effective attorneys.   

The CED Clinic focuses on issues impacting low- and moderate-income populations, emphasizing non-adversarial, transactional approaches to advocacy. Client work focuses on housing and homelessness, community, small-business and non-profit development, and policy initiatives designed to improve client communities. 

The Veterans Clinic’s goal is to create a cohesive network of experienced providers of veterans’ services, making UCI Law one of the premiere institutions for veterans’ benefits claims and discharge upgrades. The Clinic aims to help veterans navigate complicated administrative and legal issues, including military cultural competency, mental health concerns and service members’ interactions with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
