PBPO COVID-19 Resources

Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio works to strengthen our community by engaging attorney volunteers to provide nonprofits free legal resources tailored to their business needs. During this critical time, we seek to help organizations impacted by COVID-19 as well as those who are participating in the preparation and response efforts. 

We will be updating and supplementing this webpage as the coronavirus situation evolves and is better understood in order to help the nonprofit sector and those in in our community they serve.   

The laws and regulations around COVID-19 are rapidly changing, and you should consult legal counsel before making any decisions. These resources are for information purposes only and should not be construed as legal advice or opinion.


Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio is offering free 30-minute legal consultations through our Employment Helpline.
This is for PBPO clients only. To request a slot, please email [email protected] with your specific legal questions.
