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 the Greater Waco area, the Justice Gap includes the 44% of McLennan County households who in 2016 were either in poverty or one emergency away from falling into it, according to a new study by the United Ways of Texas. There are also many more individuals and households who cannot afford to pay for a private attorney or do not qualify for free legal aid. Some estimates reveal that 70% of American households fall into this Justice Gap. The demand for our work is high. Your gifts help us offer affordable legal representation, free legal advice, and community-driven collaborative partnerships so we can work towards closing The Justice Gap! 

 

Become a Sustaining Partner

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!

This chart displays the various monthly giving levels that will get us to $75,000 a year in regular giving.
