HBA, HBF, HVL Pass Resolution Supporting Continued Funding for LSC


The boards of directors of the Houston Bar Association, Houston Bar Foundation and Houston Volunteer Lawyers passed a joint resolution voicing concern over the proposed elimination of federal funding for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The LSC provides funding for Lone Star Legal Aid and Houston Volunteer Lawyers.

The boards of all three organizations are urging continued support for the LSC, which helps provide access to justice for low-income persons throughout Texas, including veterans, the elderly, disaster survivors, women, and children.
