You Can Make A Difference!

With over 100,000 low income individuals and families in our community, the need for free civil legal assistance is great.  Studies show that up to 86% of civil legal problems reported by low-income Americans received inadequate or no legal help.  Your commitment to civil legal aid and Heart of Florida Legal Aid Society will help uplift our community as we work with clients to address their legal needs with a goal of reaching family and individual stability.
