Help for Veterans

Serving those who served our country


Thousands of veterans face legal barriers to basic life necessities. Medical care.  Benefits. Housing. Jobs.

They need legal help to remove these barriers. But many -- particularly those living in rural areas -- simply cannot find anyone to help.
 
Donate in honor of a veteran or service member in your life, and we’ll list their name on our Wall of Honor.
  

You can help! Your gift provides veterans with access to food, health care, housing, treatment for disabilities, child support, pensions, job training benefits, and help with employment discrimination. Priority will be given to those who need help the most, particularly those in rural and isolated areas. (Click here to find out more about why veterans need legal help, and read more here on our blog). 

With your help, OneJustice will provide: 

 

NEW Justice Bus® Trips to Serve Veterans: Teams of volunteer attorneys and law students will be recruited and trained to bring free legal clinics directly to veterans in rural communities. Justice Bus trips have successfully bring teams of volunteers to isolated areas where resources are stretched thin and people can wait weeks to get legal advice. 

Six Veterans Law Fellowships: Six full-time attorneys have already been placed at nonprofits in Los Angeles, which has the highest population of veterans and homeless veterans. OneJustice collaborates with the national Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Fellowship program to provide fellowships that will build a coalition of attorneys to meet unmet needs for legal aid.


 

You can help.  Give to the Veterans' Legal Aid Fund today.

Your gift assures that veterans get the legal help they need to survive and thrive.

  •  $250 underwrites one hour of one-on-one legal assistance to help a rural veteran apply for benefits or appeal an incorrect denial

  • $1,000 underwrites the cost of one volunteer traveling to a rural area to advise 4-5 veterans about their legal problems

  • $7,000 underwrites the cost of an Justice Bus Trip to serve 15 to 30 veterans living in rural or isolated areas.  You will receive a video report on the trip and free legal clinic serving veterans.
