Greater Waco Legal Services was founded in 2017 to provide access to affordable legal services for those who are unable to afford the services of a private attorney, by serving individuals and families through affordable legal services, free monthly legal advice clinics, and legal empowerment workshops. We strive to help remove legal barriers in a manner that empowers clients to overcome life’s obstacles and pursue justice through compassionate and holistic advocacy. Client and community advocates help connect applicants to other necessary social services and support the community in the creation of lasting solutions to systemic problems. The Greater Waco Legal Services Team looks forward to co-creating Love and Justice together with you and our community!
