Every year, millions of low-income Americans risk losing their homes, children, or personal safety because they cannot afford a lawyer. One of the few resources these individuals can turn to in times of need is a community legal aid program funded by the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). LSC is the nation’s largest single funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans.
Right now, more than 63 million Americans – one in five – are eligible for civil legal aid, and each year, legal aid lawyers must turn away more than half of eligible clients due to a lack of resources. LSC’s Campaign for Justice is committed to bringing awareness to this crisis in civil legal aid and funding innovative projects that will help fill this void.
