BENEFITING: LAF

EVENT: Veterans Charity Challenge 3

THE STORY:

For almost 50 years, LAF has been providing free legal services in non-criminal matters to the most vulnerable people in Cook County.  One of the most at-risk groups we assist at LAF are veterans, who struggle with a variety of financial, legal, bureaucratic, physical, and emotional challenges when they are discharged from service.

LAF’s Veterans’ Rights Project is dedicated to ensuring that low-income service members, veterans, and their families receive advocacy, legal representation and educational services regarding the enforcement of their legal rights and benefits, both with the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as in a variety of other civil legal areas, including Consumer, Housing, Family,and Public Benefits law.  In 2014, LAF provided legal services to over 1,000 current service members, veterans, and their families.

LAF has the unique ability to provide comprehensive legal assistance for veterans who are contending with multiple legal problems that keep their life in an almost constant state of crisis.  Solving a client's legal problems brings a measure of stability to their lives that allows them to break the cycle of poverty and get back on track.
