“Legal Aid Struggles to Provide Essential Services”

Volunteer time to your local Legal Aid if you can!

"Legal Aid of West Virginia doesn’t receive enough support to give as much as it would like.

"The organization, which provides legal services to those who might not otherwise be able to afford such services, must raise money, as well.


"Legal Aid’s roots in the state go back to the 1950s, when legal service groups began organizing in West Virginia. The organization as it exists today started in 2002. It has 13 offices throughout the state and a staff of about 100 that includes paralegals and social advocates."
