Give to Legal Aid

give to Community Legal Aid


Why Donate?

By giving to Community Legal Aid, you give hope to those with nowhere else to turn. In supporting our direct legal assistance programs, our community outreach and education, and our ongoing policy and advocacy initiatives, you help fight against systemic issues that contribute to the cycle of poverty in our communities. You help people break out of this mold and find a way to a better life.

Your donation goes directly toward helping these individuals and families who come to us for help. Your gift helps families avoid foreclosure. It helps children with health and education needs. It helps keep adult and children victims safe from abusive environments. It helps veterans and seniors receive the benefits they need and have earned. Your gift is the difference in these people’s lives.
