Legal help is often the only thing standing between a low-income family’s efforts to see better days, or suffering a fall into deeper poverty.

In everything we do, for everyone in Nebraska: we make equal justice happen.

A successful giving month

Thank you to everyone who donated on a giving day across Nebraska during May! With your help we were able to raise just over $20,000!

Thank you!
