Legal aid is important
Solving civil legal problems stabilizes families, gets people back on their feet, and improves the bedrock economic, health, and social conditions of their lives.
Legal aid is a good investment
Addressing civil legal problems up front avoids serious and costly consequences for the individuals and families involved and for society generally.
Legal aid has no substitute
Without civil legal aid, our most vulnerable neighbors have nowhere to turn for help resolving serious civil legal problems.
