Honoring Jeffrey A. Been Of The Legal Aid Society On His Retirement February 1, 2016
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the career of Louisville resident Jeffrey A. Been as he retires after 24 years of service at the Legal Aid Society in Louisville, Kentucky. Named Executive Director at the Legal Aid Society in 2005, Jeff’s legacy at the helm of this important organization includes leading the fight to maintain funding for legal services for the poor during the Great Recession, building relationships with community partners to ensure that our city’s most disadvantaged neighbors have access to the courts and other supportive services, and expanding programming for homeowners, domestic violence victims, and veterans. In his time at the organization, he also created innovative technology tools to help facilitate greater access to our justice system for all. Jeff served as Associate Director of the Legal Aid Society from 2000-2005 and as Project Director of the organization’s HIV/AIDS Legal Project from 1992-2000. Prior to his work at Legal Aid in Louisville, Jeff served as a prosecutor, judicial law clerk, staff attorney for the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit, and on the faculty at the Indiana School of Law. Jeff also founded the HIV/AIDS Legal Project of Indiana, one of the first programs in the nation to provide free legal services to people living with HIV disease. He is also the recipient of several awards for his professional service, including the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law Dean’s Service Award, the Louisville Bar Association’s Justice Martin E. Johnstone Special Recognition Award, and the Kentucky Bar Association’s Donated Legal Service Award. On behalf of the people of Kentucky’s Third Congressional District and the City of Louisville, I extend my best wishes to Jeff as he begins a much deserved retirement."

"Shirley has been a dynamic leader of that community for over thirty years. In 1986, 950 homes in the Logan Triangle were found to be sinking, leaving families homeless and without a future. Shirley led the efforts to rescue affected families, participating in the creation and operations of the nonprofit Logan Assistance Corporation to help relocate Logan residents. She extended her efforts to help her neighbors and constituents by serving on boards such as Albert Einstein Hospital and Bebashi, one of the nation’s HIV/AIDS organizations which serves low-income people of color with HIV disease."
