Welcome to AppalReD Legal Aid’s new blog. We’ve been dreaming about it for awhile. It’s a way to feature stories in our community, give timely updates, and connect with each other. That’s always important, but right now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it feels even more urgent.
AppalReD is a pretty big family. We’ve been around fighting for equal access to justice for almost 50 years now.
We’ve got six offices, 25 staff attorneys, serving 37 counties, with help from legal support staff and administrators and amazing pro bono volunteers and donors, many of them AppalReD alumni who now have hung out their own shingle or work in government or advocacy.
And YOU. If you’re reading this, you’re part of AppalReD.
You are part of this lean, mean, access-to-justice-fighting machine.
Whether you are one of the over 200,000 people in south central and eastern Kentucky struggling to make ends meet.
Or if you’re an ally helping getting the word out to neighbors in our area about services or information.
And you might be both!
So, keep dropping by. We appreciate you.
Give us a holler if you need us: 1-866-277-5733. Our hotline will be answered by an intake specialist. We’re here, masked up, and ready to help.
