About Legal Aid Society of Orange County

About this Organization:
The Legal Aid Society of Orange County and Community Legal Services in Los Angeles County (collectively "Legal Aid") are non-profit agencies that provide free legal services to Orange County and portions of southeast/south central Los Angeles County's poor and elderly. They are funded by a combination of public and private sources. This year, Legal Aid will assist over 26,000 low-income individuals and seniors with legal matters through its four offices in Santa Ana, Anaheim, Compton and Norwalk. Approximately two-thirds of these clients were women, with a large percentage of the services provided for them either directly or indirectly benefiting children.
Legal Aid's clients are generally either at or below the poverty level. According to the 1990 Census, Orange County has over 200,000 residents and the Los Angeles service area that we serve has over 150,000 residents who have incomes below the federal poverty level -- a number that continues to grow every year. Thousands more have incomes that make hiring a lawyer impossible. Legal Aid's Seniors Program has no low-income requirement, however, offering legal assistance to anyone age 60 or over.
