LBF Establishes Hurricane Ida Disaster Fund

Hurricane Ida Disaster Fund Donate Now!

Hurricane Ida tore through Southeast Louisiana, causing extensive damage to homes and leaving many families displaced. After a disaster of this magnitude, civil legal aid needs are dramatically increased as those affected experience a variety of legal issues. Many families need help with successions and title clearing to access federal recovery dollars. Domestic violence centers become overcrowded with individuals seeking asylum. Vulnerable children need protection due to family instability and separation. The economic security of the elderly is in jeopardy. Their stories are powerful and heartbreaking. We need your help now more than ever.

We activated the hurricane disaster fund to aid our network of civil legal aid providers that work extraordinarily hard to meet emergency needs and protect our most vulnerable population.

LBF stands with our community partners who are working even harder as more families need the help of Louisiana’s civil legal aid safety net to recover from the impact of Hurricane Ida and the pandemic.

The Louisiana Bar Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity organized under the state of Louisiana.
