You’ve seen the needs in your community:
Seniors can’t afford their health care.
Families are being wrongfully evicted.
Immigrants are living in fear.
Children with disabilities aren’t getting the help they need.
You also know that the systems designed to help are slow-moving and complicated.
Your gift to Legal Aid will make sure that low-income families, seniors, and people with disabilities can get help from a lawyer who is an expert in the systems and laws designed to help and protect them.
You can rescue a person in need with the legal help they need. Donate to Legal Aid today.
