How You Can Help

Leer en español

Each year, TRLA helps more than 20,000 low-income Texans get access to civil justice. However, due to a lack of resources, too many low-income Texans still do not get the legal help they need. Currently, there are over 15,000 eligible low-income Texans for every one TRLA attorney.

Please help support TRLA in its work to provide free civil legal aid to low-income Texans who desperately need it. There is more than one way to help and every bit makes a difference. Whether it’s volunteering a little bit of your time or making a tax deductible donation. If you’re a lawyer you may choose to participate in one of our pro bono programs.
