What's the need?

62% of low income households in Tennessee experienced two or more civil legal problems relating to fundamental human needs in the past year.

  • Abuse by a loved one or caretaker
  • Unsafe housing conditions
  • Family law problems
  • Financial scams
  • Help getting access to food, shelter or medical care needed to sustain a family

If left unresolved, these problems can drive people further into poverty. Research shows that an alarming 6 of 10 low income households choose not to take any type of action to rectify legal problems - mostly because of a sense of hopelessness. Your support helps us let people know that legal assistance is available and that receiving help has the potentional to make a positive difference.
