Host: Land of Lincoln Legal Aid, Inc.
The project involves assisting low-income individuals and veterans, referred to us through Carle Foundation and the local Veterans Affairs office, with a variety of legal issues including medical debt relief, Social Security Disability Insurance appeals, Medicaid appeals, housing issues, and family matters. On a broader scale, the project enables medical providers to address the root of the problems that afflict low-income households by giving them access to legal aid.
I am committed to social justice because everyone deserves an equal opportunity to better their lives via access to basic necessities that most of us take for granted.
