About Us

What We Do

SLLS works daily to protect domestic violence victims from abuse, represents abused and neglected children in the foster care system, preserves housing for hard-working families, helps end homelessness for people with disabilities and veterans, protects elderly consumers, removes barriers to medical care, improves health outcomes, improves access to employment and education for vulnerable people, and so much more. 


Our Impact

The measureable economic impact achieved for our clients in 2014 was over $16 million in income, benefits or assets secured or protected. For every $1 invested in civil legal aid, there is almost $3 in economic benefits achieved. Our impact on lives saved through our domestic violence work, families stabilized, and abused children safeguarded through our Child in Need of Care Program is critically important, but difficult to measure. Volunteer attorneys provided about 4,535 hours of free civil help in 2014 with an in kind vale of $1,000,640. Law students donated over 10,000 hours of help in 2014 valued at $120,000. Our public information website,www.LouisianaLawhelp.org had over 123,000 unique page views last year. With the generous support of our funders, including the Legal Services Corporation, the Louisiana Bar Foundation, the United Way, and many others, SLLS handled about 10,000 cases last year. We impacted another 2,500 people through community legal education.
