President's Message February/March 2022

Proud of the LBF's Contributions to  Our Legal System and State in Challenging Year

For many Louisianians, 2021 was a difficult year. People faced both personal and professional challenges due to Hurricane Ida and the pandemic. We know that, during and after a disaster, civil legal aid needs dramatically increase. Homeowners need help with successions and title clearing to access federal recovery dollars. Missed rent payments can lead to an increase in evictions and proceedings. Domestic violence centers are impacted by an increase in residents. At the same time, vulnerable children need protection due to family instability and separation, alongside the overall economic insecurity for many families. For low-income people, help for these legal issues seems unattainable. The Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) realizes
that access to civil legal aid is crucial to Louisiana’s recovery.
