Child in CourtYour donation to SLLS increases access to justice for thousands of vulnerable people in Louisiana!

1 out of 5 Louisiana residents lives in poverty. Every day, these hardworking families face difficult problems like a lack of affordable and accessible housing, wrongful evictions, domestic violence, predatory debt collection, and denials of healthcare. Unlike in criminal court, low-income people who need to protect their families, their homes, and their savings in civil matters do not have the right to a court-appointed attorney. Without your support, too many low-income people will have nowhere to turn for the legal help they need to fight for their rights.

You can show your commitment to fighting for fairness in the justice system for vulnerable people by making a donation to SLLS today.

You can make your donation online (below) or mail your donation to: Southeast Louisiana Legal Services; P.O. Drawer 2867 Hammond, LA 70404

Thank you!

The Circle of Justice


Many generous advocates are joining our 50 More Years Campaign members as "Circle of Justice" members, showing their dedication to fighting for equal access to civil justice for the next 50 years. The Circle of Justice is a new giving circle composed of some of the strongest supporters of civil legal aid. Individuals join the Circle of Justice by making a $1000 donation to SLLS (through a one-time donation or through monthly installments.)

Circle of Justice Members will be recognized throughout 2019 and 2020 in a number of ways, including:

  • Recognition in the 2019 SLLS Annual Report
  • Invitation for two for a special patron cocktail party for Circle of Justice donors
