Legal Aid of Arkansas (LAA) is a non-profit organization that provides free legal services to low-income Arkansans with civil legal problems, including veterans, military members, and their families.
LAA also annually hosts HOPE at Central United Methodist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The event is a one-stop resource for area homeless, who will have access to haircuts, eye exams, groceries, dental exams, veteran services, free lunch, and free legal advice.
With nine offices staffed by more than 30 attorneys throughout northwest Arkansas, plus a volunteer pool of more than 1,500 attorneys, legal aid services benefited close to 36,000 low-income people and the elderly with their critical legal needs in 2012. However, 724,850 people in Arkansas live at or below 125 percent of the poverty line, and thousands of those Arkansans in need were turned away due to lack of resources.
