Where Could You Get Help?

The Campaign

The Campaign for Legal Services is a joint fundraising effort by two of New Hampshire’s civil legal aid organizations: the Legal Advice and Referral Center, and New Hampshire Legal Assistance. Working together, these organizations provide civil legal services to low-income and elderly residents to help meet their basic daily survival needs. For many people living in poverty, civil legal aid is the only pathway to food, shelter, health care, and freedom from domestic abuse.

“Everyone believes in equal justice but access to justice is not equal in New Hampshire. Basic human dignity demands that, regardless of income or circumstance, laws be equally applied to all. I support the Campaign for Legal Services so the homeless, the abused, the veterans and the elderly all have the same access to our justice system that I do.”

The Campaign is grateful for the hundreds of individuals like Jim who support civil legal assistance with a charitable contribution every year. Please help us reach our 2014 Campaign goal of $300,000 by making an online tax-deductible contribution today. Thank you for your support!
