The justice system is all too often closed off from those without wealth or power. However, with your help, together we can share the good news of worth, dignity, love and justice with a world in need! Providing the unemployed, the homeless, the abused, the marginalized stranger – the “least of these” – access to a legal advocate who will listen compassionately, represent their rights zealously, and fervently seek justice and love with them, for them, and among them is what we do.
Join us as a Sustaining Partner as together we Close the Gap!
The Justice Gap is the difference between the civil legal needs of low-income Americans and the resources available to meet those needs in 2017. In the Greater Waco area, the justice gap includes the close to 80% of households in our community who cannot afford to pay for a private attorney and do not qualify for free legal aid. GWLS’s work seeks to close this justice gap and ensure everyone in our community receives equal access to justice.
At GWLS, it currently costs us approximately $455 per client to provide holistic, affordable legal services. Our clients provide on average about $335 toward these costs through the fees they pay for our services. That leaves a financial gap of about $120 per client that we need you to help us close! The chart below offers some options for you to become a Sustaining Partner (monthly donor) in helping us Close the Gap, and of course your one-time donations help close the gap as well!
Or you can send a check to Greater Waco Legal Services at PO Box 689, Waco, TX 76703.
Thank you for partnering with us as together we Close the Gap!
