Disaster Relief

We know that after a disaster, civil legal aid needs are dramatically increased.  Displaced families and individuals experience a variety of legal needs.  Many need help with successions and title clearing to access federal recovery dollars.  Domestic violence centers are impacted with increased residents.  Vulnerable children need protection due to family instability and separation.  The economic security of the elderly is in jeopardy.  The stories are powerful and heartbreaking. 

Puerto Rico Emergency Legal Aid Fund – Hurricane María

In these moments of crisis after the storm, in which hundreds of thousands of puertoricans suffered material loss, there is much need for help in emergency legal services. Donate to the Emergency Legal Aid Fund - Hurricane Maria.
Hurricane Harvey Disaster Fund

Funding for immediate legal services is a significant need facing Texas and Louisiana hurricane victims.  Basic needs such as housing, employment, insurance and federal program benefits are issues for most citizens in the affected areas and not just for those living in poverty.  The LBF is working with stakeholders on the local, state and national level to most efficiently and effectively address the many needs. 

At this time, we have established the Louisiana Hurricane Harvey Disaster Fund to provide support to those in need.  Also, you may provide a donation directly to the Texas Equal Access to Justice Foundation Hurricane Legal Aid Fund.
