Legal Aid was approached by the Marion County Environmental Court to assist a 77-year old man whose physical health and depression had caused his home to fall into disrepair. The client had a serious hoarding problem which consumed his life. With the assistance of Legal Aid’s attorney, the client successfully addressed his legal and psychological problems.  The elderly man facing homelessness was able to stay in his home and live a productive life.

 

There are many stories we could share with you about how Legal Aid donors have helped Hoosier families stay together — children live in a safe and stable environment; seniors and mentally and physically-disabled adults remain in their homes; and ex-offenders live productive and valuable lives. These life-changing and life-saving situations help to strengthen communities throughout Central Indiana.

 

Legal Aid services not only affects our clients positively, but their children and family members as well. The number of low-income Hoosiers in Central Indiana impacted by the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society conservatively reaches 35,000 each year.
Because we are seeing a dramatic increase in clients who have nowhere else to turn, we are launching our major donor campaign, the Legal Aid Leadership Circle. The Leadership Circle will allow us to serve many more Hoosiers by hiring additional attorneys, along with expanding and creating additional programs to assist the under-served population in our community.
Please consider becoming a founding member of the Leadership Circle; we need your help in reaching our goal. Information regarding donor levels and benefits can be found below.
As you may know, nearly 90% of your donation goes directly to providing legal access to low-income individuals. In addition, Legal Aid does not receive federal funding, therefore, we rely on local funding sources.
