Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Jim Renacci (R-OH) released the following statement on the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland receiving a grant to aid northeast Ohioans in legal matters:
“The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland has the mission to secure justice and resolve fundamental problems for those who are low income and vulnerable in five counties across Northeast Ohio. The dedicated and talented legal professionals at The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland accomplish this goal each and every day by providing their clients with high-quality legal services,” said Renacci. “The Technology Initiative Grant from the Legal Services Corporation will provide vital resources to assist The Legal Aid Society with the accomplishment of their mission of working for systemic solutions to the legal problems facing their clients. I have no doubt The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland will be good stewards of these resources.”
The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland will receive a total of $207,750 to develop a successful text messaging pilot project to track client outcomes and assess the impact of limited assistance to clients. The Society was selected to receive a Technology Initiative Grant from the Legal Services Corporation as a result of funds that were appropriated by Congress to assist legal services programs in expanding assistance to constituents.
The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland serves five counties across northeast Ohio including Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, and Lorain counties.
