An unexpected life crisis can happen to anyone:ADAd

  • A mother is abused by her husband in front of her children in a remote rural village and does not have the financial means or support to leave;
  • A grandfather falls behind on his mortgage payment and struggles to care for his family while fearing the loss of their shelter;
  • A veteran is denied federal benefits, even though his mental disabilities leave him housebound and unable to work in his rural community.

For all of these problems there is a legal solution, but unfortunately paying for an attorney’s help can be far beyond the reach of many Alaskans. ¬†For them and thousands like them, Alaska Legal Services Corporation (ALSC) is their only hope to access Alaska’s civil justice system. ¬†Established in 1967, ALSC is a nonprofit law firm that provides free legal assistance to low-income and vulnerable Alaskans in need.
