The demand on us for services is overwhelming compared to our limited resources. In 2012, we faced the loss of $1.2 million in Legal Services Corporation funding. We meet only about 10% of the need poor people have for civil legal representation in our area. This is typical of Legal Services programs.

For our clients, having an SLLS lawyer can prevent loss of family, food, shelter, income, medical care, or personal safety. Last year we helped 531 domestic violence victims seek safety, 382 people confronting the aftermath of the BP Oil Spill, and 713 people with disabilities. A recent study showed that our work nets nearly $36 million in benefits for our clients each year. To recognize this contribution, the American Bar Association presented SLLS with its 2012 Hodson Award for public service.
