Help offered to navigate legal info

Hope-based literacy society providing outreach in Agassiz

A local organization is offering to help people navigate legal issues, through a monthly open door program.

Larissa Dyble, with the Red Right Society, will be working out of the Agassiz Harrison Community Services office once a month. While she is not there to provide legal advice or counsel, she can provide legal information and resources to those who need it.

Dyble said that could include a multitude of issues, from rental disputes to custody issues. The Read Right Society is a non-profit that is based out of Hope that provides literacy help for the community, and they are offering this program through the Legal Services Society.

“We are here to provide legal information and resources to clients and, if needed, help them work through the information. We do not provide legal advice or counsel,” Dyble explained.

She will be in Agassiz the second Thursday of every month, beginning on Dec. 11. Other dates are Jan. 15, Feb. 12, March 12, April 9, May 14 and June 11.

If anyone has any questions about the program, accessing information or resources, her email is larissa.readright@gmail.com and phone number is 1-604-869-1363.
