Legal Aid Society
A local woman who suffered severe abuse at the hands of her husband sought out legal help at Legal Aid Society. The staff at Legal Aid Society were able to provide a voice for her and her children in the legal system. They were able to get her a protective order; get him removed from the home; help her file for divorce and child support, plus set the father up under supervised visitations with the children. Also, the staff there, referred her to Christian Women's Job Corps to get a job and Women's Protective Services for counseling. The family is now protected and stable.
