Father Daughter

Imagine facing a life-changing legal issue – domestic abuse, eviction threats, hunger – and not having the resources to fight for yourself. The stark reality is, for every one attorney at Legal Aid Society, there are 8,000 individuals who need help. Nearly 75% of these individuals face at least one critical legal problem each year, often with no one to turn to.

This is where you come in.

Your donation provides real relief for families like Lanie's. A single mother of three, Lanie found herself trapped in an abusive marriage. Fearing for her children's safety, she faced separation, potential homelessness, and a confusing legal system – all alone.

"After leaving my ex-husband, I went to court scared and unrepresented," Lanie recalls. "I didn't know how to get an order of protection."

Thankfully, Lanie found Legal Aid Society. We empowered her to navigate the legal process, securing an order of protection, and a safe haven for her family.

With your support, we can help countless others like Lanie. Every dollar donated helps families avoid homelessness, find safety from abuse, and build a brighter future.
