Legal Aid Celebrates 100 years as a United Way Agency

Back

In 2013, The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland will celebrate its 100th year as a United Way of Greater Cleveland partner agency. The Cleveland Federation for Charity and Philanthropy – the precursor to our modern United Way – selected Legal Aid as a charter member in 1913.

Legal Aid is grateful to receive grants and designations through United Way of Greater Cleveland, United Way of Ashtabula County and United Way of Greater Lorain County. These gifts have a positive impact on hundreds of low-income people in our community year round.
