Zonta provides computer to help Sojourn clients

[April 21, 2012]  Zonta International is a global organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. The Zonta Club of Lincoln did just that recently by presenting Casey Gave, Sojourn court advocate for Logan County, with a much-needed laptop computer and printer.

Susan Harmon, vice president of the Lincoln club, had asked Gave to speak at Zonta's monthly meeting on March 26. The Sojourn court advocate provides support to clients who are in need of services through the criminal justice system, which ties in with the club's mission statement. Gave had mentioned that she needed a means for clients to type up resumes, watch videos and access the Internet. At the time she had nothing to offer the clients. As a matter of fact, in order to print anything, she had to send it to a different office.

With the help of a former Zonta Scholarship winner, Keenan Leesman, the local club was able to purchase a laptop along with a multipurpose printer. Leesman is currently the Employee of the Year at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital and did all the research to purchase the right equipment for the job.
