The Herbert W. Vaughan Fund

In 1999, the Boston Bar Association (BBA) Real Estate Section, through the outstanding leadership of Herbert W. Vaughan, established the BBA Lawyer for the Day Program in Boston Housing Court.  Since that time, thousands of individuals struggling to navigate a complex, overburdened court system have found relief through this program. Volunteer lawyers and law students help unrepresented tenants and landlords with a range of services, from information and advice to full representation in eviction proceedings.

Since the program's inception, over 15,000 landlords and tenants have been provided representation. Your gift to the Herbert W. Vaughan Fund will help us continue to make a difference for families facing eviction and landlords facing foreclosure.
