Easier access to legal help is coming soon!  LASP is upgrading the telephone and database that serves our Helpline – which fields more than 17,000 calls yearly. Here, Eileen Wainwright and Anthony Miller from Relevante are beginning installation work. Funding for these improvements came from a Legal Services Corporation Technical Innovation Grant, The Pew Fund for Health and Human Services Capacity Building Program, the Independence Foundation and the McLean Contribtionship.

Increased Safety for Victims of Domestic Violence

October 17th, 2013

Although October is Domestic Violence Month, LASP advocates help victims like Ms. G throughout the year. 

Ms. G’s husband beat her so badly that she needed hospitalization and follow-up medical care.   Worse, the beating happened in front of her 8 year old son.  When she was able, Ms. G came to LASP for help.  A LASP advocate helped her get a Protection from Abuse order and obtain sole custody of her son. 

Ms. G was one of the 752 people LASP helped to get a Protection From Abuse (PFA) order in FY2012-13. In each county LASP serves, its advocates work closely with local domestic violence agencies to ensure that victims can get assistance applying for a PFA.   Research shows that PFAs improve safety for domestic abuse victims, providing an important step along the road to a life free from fear and violence.
