About GHLA Foundation
The Greater Hartford Legal Aid Foundation’s mission is to ensure equal access to justice by raising funds to preserve and expand civil legal services for low-income people in Greater Hartford by supporting Greater Hartford Legal Aid. The Greater Hartford Legal Aid Foundation board includes members from the leading law firms and corporations in the Hartford area, who serve as ambassadors for our mission of justice.
The Greater Hartford Legal Aid Foundation’s financial support to GHLA allows GHLA to provide quality free legal services to the people with the most pressing legal problems related to meeting their basic human needs for shelter, safety, health, education and economic security.
Message from the Greater Hartford Legal Aid Foundation Board President:
2014 marked 100 years of legal aid in the greater Hartford community. We ask for your help in launching our second 100 years, because our neighbors still need us. Legal aid clients face homelessness, inability to escape violence, diminished educational and employment opportunity, and inability to meet basic human needs such as food and health care. Increasingly, as society’s commitment to a basic “safety net” waxes and wanes, more and more poor people must rely on the law to meet these challenges and simply survive.
Every day, Greater Hartford Legal Aid attorneys provide core essential legal representation for families, community education and empowerment to help people better help themselves, and advocacy to improve systems that underlie their clients’ problems and the barriers to their success. The hard working advocates at GHLA could not provide all the legal protections and options for this vulnerable population without the continued support of the Greater Hartford Legal Aid Foundation.
Your support of Greater Hartford Legal Aid Foundation will allow GHLA’s lawyers to make a difference in the daily lives of poor people. GHLA addresses civil legal problems that can only be fixed by a lawyer skilled in the areas of the law that most affect the poor.
Join us – help those who depend on Legal Aid for access to justice. Any amount you can give will truly make a difference.
