Civil Legal Aid: The Second Responders

When hurricanes and other natural disasters strike, first responders make sure people have the basics – food, shelter, utilities and medical care. But when the survivors start picking up the pieces of their lives, it’s the second responders on whom they depend. Civil legal aid providers are among the most critical of the second responders. They are in the recovery effort for the long haul.

100 percent of your gift will go directly to hurricane-related civil legal aid. Florida's civil legal aid organizations provide help securing FEMA and other benefits available to disaster survivors; dealing with life, medical and property insurance claims; addressing issues with home repair contracts and contractors; replacing wills and other important legal documents destroyed in the disaster; handling consumer protection matters, remedies and procedures; preventing foreclosure and resolving landlord/tenant problems; and addressing the unique civil legal needs of poor communities.
