Join us as a Sustaining Partner as together we Close the Gap!

Your generosity empowers Greater Waco Legal Services to strategically provide affordable legal services so that the historically under-served in our community can grow healthier, become more educated, and more financially secure.

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. The demand for our work is high. Help us meet this demand and close this Justice gap, so we can ensure everyone in our community receives equal access to justice.
