Who is eligible for free legal services?
For most help, individuals must be a U. S. Citizen or legal resident, have low-income and limited assets and be seeking help with a civil legal issue of the type we handle. While most services are available only to low-income individuals and families, special funding enables us to provide assistance to the elderly, those with foreclosure prevention, mortgage default and other housing matters, and tax issues even if you are not low-income. Our staff can provide you with information about your particular situation. Visit us https://malsi.org/client-services/ for more details 📍
We currently have a few rare spots available in our Pre-K program.

The Courage to Be Yourself
"The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice, it is conformity."
Rollo May, American existential psychologist and author
How do we support our children to discover who they are, their interests, their talents, their gifts? How do we support them in their Quest when so much in their day says, "Conform. Conform. Conform"?

A shout out to everyone who looks beyond the behaviour, you make a difference.😀
Image + quote from Dance with me in the Heart
Image description - a painting of a young child with the words "When we only look at behaviour, we stop seeing the child and only look with an intent to judge whether we need to reward or punish. When we look behind the behaviour, we see that little struggling human, our little human who needs our help with something." Words by Rebecca Eanes, Artist Celeste Keller

Did you know?
The earliest Women’s Day observance, called “National Women’s Day,” was held on February 28, 1909, in New York City, organized by the Socialist Party of America at the suggestion of activist Theresa Malkiel. Though there have been claims that the day was commemorating a protest by women garment workers in New York on March 8, 1857, researchers have described this as a myth.
The idea to make it international came from Clara Zetkin, who suggested the idea at an International Conference for Working Woman in Copenhagen in 1910. It was comprised of 100 women from 17 countries. It was first celebrated in 1911 in Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, and Austria.
International Women’s Day is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.
International Women’s Day Logo/ Colors : International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Around the world, a significant level of activity gets underway and many groups and organizations use the IWD logo, the annual campaign theme and IWD assets to promote awareness about gender parity. The IWD logo is used to support and unify activity that celebrates and drives women’s advancement, and it’s brilliant to see the large volume of worldwide activity each year driving gender parity.

Who Am I?
Children don't come with a self image, an image of who they are. Their understanding of 'who they are' is built up in increments. They take in and process all the sensory data available to them in their superfast subconscious brain. They work out 'who they are' from the way we speak with them, the way we pick them up, the way we change their nappy, the way we pull their tee shirt over their head, the way we wipe their nose, the way we respond to them when they are tired, the way we respond to them when we are tired, the way our face lights up when they come into our presence... .
Gestation & Exterogestation
Gestation - The period of development in the uterus from conception until birth; pregnancy. Exterogestation - The period of continued development after the birth. Latin gestation, gestatio - from gestare to bear, to carry.
There are 40 weeks of gestation on the inside and 40 weeks of gestation on the outside. The second 40 week period is called extero-gestation, ‘the in-arms period’, and it has even been called the ‘4th trimester’ in order to emphasise the baby is still in formation with her mother.
This is why the bonding of the baby with the parent is the child's most basic need. The child is 'at home' within the bonded relationship, that is their place of safety from which they will venture out and explore the wonderful world they live in.
