Poverty touches our urban, rural and suburban communities in Northeast Ohio – including inner-ring suburbs of Cleveland. Recently, the Healthy Lakewood Foundation invested $25,000 in Legal Aid. The funding will be used to help spread the word about Legal Aid’s services to Lakewood residents with low-income, and serve a growing population in need.
In 2020, Legal Aid handled 80 cases for clients in Lakewood, impacting a total of 380 people. We helped many more through our online resources and brief advice clinics (which have gone “virtual” since the spring of 2020).
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, we have also been publishing regular articles in the Lakewood Observer detailing how Legal Aid can help with a variety of issues and how to contact us. This year, thanks to the partnership of the Healthy Lakewood Foundation, we will be able to do even more representation, outreach, and education in the City of Lakewood.
