Only 1 in 5 Idahoans
living in poverty receive the civil legal help they need when their most basic human rights are at stake.
Nearly 225,000 Idahoans
currently live in poverty. Without free legal help, they are effectively shut out of the judicial system.
Idaho is 1 of only 2 states
that does not provide funding for civil legal aid.
Providing low-income Idahoans with the legal help they need and deserve is an uphill battle.

Idaho Legal Aid Services is a nonprofit statewide law firm dedicated to providing equal access to justice for low-income people through advocacy and education. Every year, Idaho Legal Aid Services helps thousands of Idahoans with critical legal problems such as escaping domestic violence and sexual assault, protecting abused and neglected children, preserving housing, helping vulnerable seniors and stopping discrimination. Idaho Legal Aid Services also operates two free legal hotlines and engages in outreach and preventative legal education efforts throughout Idaho.
For over 25 years, the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program has increased access to legal services for low-income Idahoans by organizing private attorneys across Idaho to provide pro bono legal services. This pro bono program recruits attorneys from local communities who volunteer their time and expertise to assist those in need with representation and legal advice. The Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program helps narrow the gap between legal needs and available resources. In addition to direct case representation, the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program also offers legal clinics to the VA, senior centers and homeless shelters and provides education for young, single parents and grandparents serving as parents through the Soundstart program.
