The Bronx Defenders, Center for Holistic Defense, will continue and expand on its training and technical assistance efforts for public defenders adopting a more holistic model of indigent defense representation. Holistic defense is an innovative model of public defense that seeks not only to zealously advocate for clients in court, but also to help to address the causes and consequences of criminal justice involvement by offering civil legal services and non-legal social work support.
