    Legal Services
    LSC is the single largest funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans in the nation. Established in 1974, LSC operates as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that promotes equal access to justice and provides grants for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income Americans. LSC distributes about 95 percent of its total funding to 135 independent nonprofit legal aid programs with more than 900 offices throughout the nation. LSC promotes equal access to justice by awarding grants to legal services providers through a competitive grants process; conducting compliance reviews and program visits to oversee program quality and compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements as well as restrictions that accompany LSC funding; and by providing training and technical assistance to programs. LSC encourages programs to leverage limited resources by partnering and collaborating with other funders of civil legal aid, including state and local governments, IOLTA, access to justice commissions, the private bar, philanthropic foundations, and the business community. The Corporation is headed by a bipartisan board of directors whose 11 members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

    This is a resource from the American Bar Association. They have a standing committee established to encourage attorneys to give back to their communities. You can find facilities in every state and typically the people answering the phones are attorneys as well.

    Pro Bono Lawyers
    Find lawyers who are willing to work "for the public good" (the meaning of pro bono). These law firms or organizations may be willing to work for free or for a reduced rate depending on the circumstances. Contact the closest office for more information.
