Where Your Donation Provides
Legal Relief for Disaster Survivors


Legal services are human services.
Today and in the months and years to come, survivors will need lawyers and legal services to recover from these disasters.  Your donation will help increase pro bono legal representation and provide crucial resources needed to help survivors rebuild their lives, now and in the future.

*The ABA continues to develop and execute a national disaster legal response to address the needs of emerging communities when disaster strikes.  This includes establishing legal hotlines, recruiting and training pro bono attorneys, and helping to build capacity within local legal services providers. 

*The ABA Young Lawyers Division’s Disaster Legal Services Program, in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is on the ground delivering free legal assistance in Texas, Georgia, Florida and now California. Working with the Louisiana Civil Justice Center, an emergency hotline is now available to residents of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, forming a working model for a national hotline.

*ABA Free Legal Answers is a web platform that is connecting hurricane victims with pro bono attorneys who will answer their legal questions. Both Texas and Florida had nearly a 100% increase in civil legal questions since the end of August and volunteer attorneys are responding.

 *Flood Proof, a mobile app developed by the ABA Center for Innovation, helps flood victims gather information needed to establish home ownership and complete disaster relief applications. The app is available in Louisiana and is being modified for other states and in other languages.

The public service and educational programs of the American Bar Association receive funding through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE).  The FJE was created to accept gifts and grants to support the ABA’s public service work.  The FJE qualifies as an exempt fund under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions to the FJE are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
