About St. Andrew Legal Clinic
We are a community-based, charitable organization that purposefully acts with compassion and spiritual motivations to help people in need.
SALC helps bridge the gap for families who do not qualify for Legal Aid and can not afford to hire a private attorney. As a result of the legal representation that SALC provides, families have increased financial security, stay off of welfare and are overall more productive members of our society. And more children also grow up in positive and safe environments as a result of SALC's intervention.
Long-Time Executive Director Joel Overlund Departs SALC
Joel Overlund, long-time Executive Director of St. Andrew Legal Clinic, has decided to step down as Executive Director and return to private practice in family law. Joel dedicated 23 years to SALC – 18 years as Executive Director – and was instrumental in growing the Clinic from its modest beginnings in Northeast Portland to helping under-served families in five counties in the metropolitan area today. Under his leadership, over 50,000 families have had access to legal services and the lives of thousands of women and children are more secure.
Hollis Bredeweg is serving as the Interim Executive Director. Hollis comes
from the Nonprofit Association of Oregon’s Executive Transition Services Team
and will guide SALC through the transition as the Board works to identify the
next Executive Director.
