Greater Waco Legal Services

Love & Justice

Tens of thousands of Wacoans cannot afford desperately needed legal services. Half the qualified applicants for legal aid must be turned away. That’s where GWLS comes in, closing the Justice Gap in the community. GWLS provides affordable legal services, holistic advocacy, and community-driven problem solving so all members of the community have equal access to justice, thus growing healthier, more educated and financially secure. In 2018, GWLS represented over 360 clients and provided over 1,100 others with various legal services. They offer free monthly legal advice clinics, legal empowerment workshops and serve as an integral partner in the community’s creation of lasting solutions to systemic problems. Recently, a generous Cooper Foundation grant will significantly expand their Medical-Legal Partnership with the Family Health Center. The number of Wacoans who need affordable legal services grows daily. That’s where you come in. GWLS needs sustaining partners to help continue this work. Please consider becoming a sustaining partner. Visit greaterwacolegalservices.org/donate to partner in their mission of Love and Justice.
