Who We Help
The need for legal services is at an all time high. Modern society presents people with significant legal problems in all areas of life. The number of people able to afford legal representation has dropped as the number of poor and working poor has risen. The U.S. ranks near the bottom of the world’s wealthiest countries in how it cares for children in poverty. The number of suburban residents living in poverty rose by nearly 64% between 2000 and 2011. Many of the women and children living in poverty are single parent households. Government funded legal services programs have limited budgets and only serve a small portion of those needing help.
