The North Carolina Bar Foundation is pleased to announce that a Triad Area North Carolina COVID-19 Legal Hotline took place on Friday, June 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event was sponsored by the North Carolina Bar Foundation and Legal Aid of North Carolina in partnership with WFMY.

Volunteer attorneys provided free information and resources about issues related to housing, bills or debt, unemployment benefits, health insurance, personal safety, stimulus checks, and other matters affecting the health, well-being and financial security of households in the extended Triad region. Questions from small business owners and nonprofit leaders facing challenges due to COVID-19 were accepted.

Volunteer attorneys provided brief legal help to callers regarding questions based on North Carolina or federal law, and refer them other resources, if needed.
