Funding Equal Access to Justice

The Legal Aid Foundation of Colorado raises money for Colorado Legal Services (CLS), Colorado’s statewide Legal Aid program. CLS is the only agency in the state that provides free legal services in civil cases to clients who could not otherwise afford them in every Colorado county through a network of 13 offices. CLS served over 26,000 individuals and families in the last year alone.
Colorado has about half the legal aid lawyers it did 40 years ago, while over the same period, the number of low-income Coloradans eligible for services has tripled. For every client served by CLS, at least one income-eligible person is turned away. With your support, CLS is working to meet this expanded need and help ensure justice for all is more than just a promise.
