Statewide Needs Assessment
The recently released Statewide Legal Needs Assessment demonstrates great legal need and few legal resources. ERLS, DPLS, and A2J receive about three hundred and fifty applications for assistance through sdlawhelp.org every month. While we are one state, challenges and resources vary by community and we need to respond accordingly. We’re excited to take action on the recommendations included in the report. Please reach out with questions, suggestions, or a desire to collaborate to respond to the needs outlined in the report.
