|About||Welcome to the Facebook page of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County!|
|Mission||The mission of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County is to provide high quality civil legal advice, representation and education free of charge to disadvantaged children, families and individuals in Palm Beach County so as to protect their personal safety, enhance their opportunities and living conditions, and promote self-sufficiency.|
The Legal Aid Society was founded in 1949 with a mission of providing equal access to our judicial system to the disadvantaged children, families and individuals living in Palm Beach County. At its inception, Legal Aid employed one attorney who provided free consultation and advice to low-income individuals and referred all litigation matters to pro bono attorneys. Today Legal Aid employs a staff of 97 and operates 17 legal projects serving all of Palm Beach County.
Each year through its in-house staff and Pro Bono Project, Legal Aid provides more than 7,000 disadvantaged residents with no-cost legal assistance as well as a variety of community education and outreach programs. Legal Aid's advocacy has improved the lives and living conditions of victims of domestic violence, abused, neglected and orphaned children, frail and exploited elders, the physically challenged, HIV-infected individuals, new immigrants and entire communities.
