Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery LLP is proud to be a supporter of Doors of Change, formerly known as “Photocharity,” a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness to save and empower homeless and disadvantaged youth in San Diego County and beyond since 2001.
Earlier this month the organization held its “Celebration of Hope” gala and auction, where Fitch Even was recognized, along with other regular supporters, for our pro bono assistance. Over the years Fitch Even attorneys have successfully procured several trademark registrations to protect the charity’s brands.
Since its inception, Doors of Change has placed over 1,800 homeless youth ages 12–17 in long-term safe housing and has implemented highly successful programs that include the “House of Hope” program and the award-winning “Taking Music & Arts to the Streets.”
