According to LSC’s 2017 Justice Gap Report, 70% of low-income Americans who personally experienced a civil legal problem in the past year reported that the problem “very much” or “severely” affected their lives. And yet, 86% of those Americans won't receive the legal help they need because they can't afford an attorney. That's the justice gap... and it's devastating our most vulnerable population.
But we're working to change that.
We're dedicated to closing the justice gap, but we can't do it alone. Your financial contribution is essential for us to reach our friends and neighbors that need help protecting their rights. Whether they're facing an eviction notice, needing to escape an abusive relationship, or caring for a child with disabilities, FJTC's tools work to address these problems by providing accessible, user-friendly tools and resources.
For every document downloaded/completed through FJTC's tools, at least 15 minutes of legal aid attorney time is saved. That's 15 minutes that can be applied to another person in need and with thousands of documents downloaded and completed through tools like Florida Law Help, Florida Name Change, and Turning 18, those small savings equate to more than $1,000,000 in resources in 2018 alone.
Some other 2018 accomplishments include:
That means that every penny counts. Every donation counts. Your donation can make a difference.
