The Story

Our Work: Justice for All


Civil legal aid is an essential part of America’s promise of equal justice for all. The Justice for All Campaign is your opportunity to invest in making this promise a reality for thousands of individuals and families living in northwest Ohio. Your support of this campaign can make a life-changing difference for those in our community who cannot afford a private attorney or who are unable to navigate the justice system on their own.

Lack of access to the justice system is a defining aspect of poverty and a barrier to breaking the cycle that traps many families. Like many other legal service providers and pro bono programs across the country, we are meeting only 20 percent of the legal needs of low-income people. Bridging this justice gap is critical to the success of the work of Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE), Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Inc. (LAWO), and the Toledo Bar Association (TBA) Pro Bono Legal Services Program, and is the primary reason for the campaign.


One Campaign

The Justice for All Campaign is a fundraising partnership among LAWO, the TBA Pro Bono Legal Services Program, and ABLE. As the sole providers of free civil legal aid to low-income residents in northwest Ohio, the Justice for All Campaign unites our fundraising efforts to ensure that vulnerable and disenfranchised members of our community have equal access to the legal system.

Why is our work in providing equal access to justice so important? Our advocates provide free civil legal services to help clients find legal solutions to desperate circumstances. In 2015, we helped more than 6,000 individuals and families in matters of domestic violence, family law, immigration, elder law, housing and eviction defense, consumer law, and benefits assistance.


We Need Your Help

Every gift makes a difference. We need your financial support to continue to serve people who would not otherwise have a voice. By giving to the Justice for All Campaign, you change lives — person by person, family by family, case by case. When you give to the campaign, we put your donation to work where it matters most: helping people gain access to justice to protect their rights.

Options for supporting the work of ABLE, the TBA Pro Bono Legal Services Program, and LAWO are as varied as the programs and services we offer. Whatever your interest – helping children, preventing homelessness, providing safety, protecting civil rights, maintaining families – there is a giving opportunity within the campaign. When you support the Justice for All Campaign, you help create equal access to justice. We need you. Our clients need you.
