Why Support

The Legal Aid Society protects families by providing safety and security for victims of domestic violence, protecting the elderly from abuse and exploitation and helping prevent homelessness and unlawful evictions. Being part of Metropolitan Family Services enables us to provide comprehensive services to compliment legal aid. Clients have access to community-based services such as counseling, financial support and child care programs.

We Need Your Help

We serve more than 12,600 clients served annually. With just eight full-time staff attorneys and four full-time paralegals, there is always a need for funding and volunteers. You can help by pledging financial support, either by a monetary contribution or by getting involved with our annual Equal Access to Justice Award Luncheon through sponsorship or attendance. We are also always looking for volunteers for pro bono casework and other services.
