Legal Aid of the Bluegrass
Legal Aid of the Bluegrass (LABG) is dedicated to providing civil legal assistance designed to alleviate the most brutal problems endured by low income residents of 33 eastern, northern and central Kentucky counties. Areas include government benefits, consumer, housing and family law with special projects directed at serving the unique needs of the elderly, veterans, and survivors of domestic violence, including immigrants.
LABG is the lifeline to justice, safety and stability in its communities. While the financial crisis has caused greater suffering among clients, and limited resources have forced LABG to turn away more than half of those who are eligible based on income and nature of the legal problem, LABG has developed new approaches and focused on work that will have the greatest positive impact. It is proud to continue to make a difference in the lives of low income and vulnerable residents of its service area.
