The first step is to meet with the NPO to identify the economic capacity of the organization, as well as the legal and organizational needs to be met. From this meeting, the best resource is identified to meet the identified need, and a meeting is held with both the non-profit organization and the referred lawyer. Services agreements are signed between the parties: an agreement between the non-profit and the Coalition and another agreement between the latter and the referred lawyer.
Another service of great impact is training workshops on relevant legal aspects in the management of organizations and legal aspects related to the specific work they perform, such as labor rights and employee manuals; procedural manuals; protection of marginalized sectors in the areas of advanced age, health, education; volunteer management; lobbying and "advocacy", intellectual property; management of micro and social enterprises; environmental conservation and tax-exempt housing. The need to provide these training workshops stems from the reality in which many non-profit organizations operate, where they do not have enough resources to cover their training and strengthen their operations.
