Members of the LIBRE (Linking Immigrants to Benefits, Resources and Education) partnership, including the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, were honored with the Cross-Sector Collaboration And Partnership Award at the Thrive Alliance Star Power Nonprofit Awards Breakfast.

Aid Society of San Mateo County Directing Attorney Hope Nakamura said: “It’s especially meaningful given that we’re in the company of so many great nonprofits. LIBRE brings together the expertise of trusted local community organizations with the expertise of the Legal Aid Society. Collectively, we are able to augment key partners’ resources so they can incorporate the safety net benefits work into their ongoing community outreach and use trusted community partners to help people apply for benefits.”
