Ministry of the Week
September 29 - October 5, 2014
Because access to legal aid is limited to a few
offices within the state, those who seek such services often cannot find
help. More than 4,300 of the poor in
need of legal help are turned away every working day in the United States. While those who commit criminal fraud or
abuse in this country are entitled to a free lawyer, their victims have no such
entitlement. In fact, nearly 75% of the poor in our communities have no idea
that there is anyone who can help them with such matters, nor do they
understand that they are qualified for this help. Without our services, many would do nothing
about their situation (which could ultimately take a relatively simple problem
and turn it into a major and complex issue), or they would attempt to represent
themselves in court with little chance of success in our complex system of laws.
