Our society has a fundamental obligation to guarantee justice for all of its members. The Center for Disability & Elder Law (CDEL) has been expanding access to justice to persons marginalized by poverty, age and/or disability, for over thirty years.
Catherine "Kitty" Alexander, long-time paralegal volunteer and friend of CDEL, passed away suddenly on Monday, May 3rd, 2016. Kitty first joined CDEL in 2008, as a paralegal intern.
A student of CDEL Legal Director, Thomas Wendt in Truman College's Paralegal Program, Kitty was a constant presence at CDEL from 2008-2011, and occasionally since then. Kitty even helped CDEL unpack after our recent move as recently as this past Sunday.

Our thoughts are with Kitty's family. We will miss her humor and good cheer.
The 2016 “Light Up the Loop” Winter Awards Benefit was a smashing success! The evening celebrated CDEL’s dedicated volunteer base, honored the prestigious 2016 Award Winners and raised over $115,000 to benefit CDEL’s programs and mission of providing much needed legal assistance to the low income elderly and disabled population of Chicago and suburban Cook County.
