The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
California paralegal Inez Whitlow is the Executive Director of Chicks in Crisis, a non-profit group which helps women with unplanned pregnancies and adoption services. Ms. Whitlow founded the organization in 1997, initially working out of her garage.
“I’ve been in that situation and I know how hard it is to ask for help,” she said. “I was that poor chick, I had three kids.” Since many of the “baby mamas” that she works with are without a car, and often a home, Whitlow comes to them and takes them out for a meal. The women can get a healthy meal for their baby and tell her their story.“By the time they’re done talking, I’ve got a plan,” she said.
