Your Impact as a Donor

For every dollar you give, we are able to provide $3.50 in financial benefit to our clients. By giving to Community Legal Aid, you give hope to those with nowhere else to turn. You help people break out of the mold of poverty and find a way to a better life.

Your gift is the difference in people's lives.

 

Where Your Money Goes

Direct client representation

At the core of our mission is individual client service. Your donation helps pay for attorney and paralegal time to work one-on-one with clients, as well as covering court and filing fees for those unable to pay.

Educational outreach

We believe that through public education, we can better prepare and protect low-income families and individuals from meeting legal problems in the first place. Your gift helps us provide free public clinics and workshops, as well as trainings for others in our community who work with similar populations, to help potential clients recognize and avoid legal trouble.

Systemic advocacy

Our legal team fights every day against systemic issues that contribute to the cycle of poverty in our communities. We confront these issues head-on, both regionally at at the state level, advocating for the best interests of low-income populations in policy decisions. Your donation helps continue this work, fighting for the poor at the earliest possible point in the justice system.
