The Lancaster Law Foundation's purpose is to to improve the lives of Lancaster County residents by promoting equal access to justice through philanthropy, education and service.
We promote equal access to justice for all in Lancaster County by funding public interest law projects, delivering pro bono service, and educating the public on civic and legal issues.
We help fund the Safe-at-Home Child Custody Project at MidPenn Legal Services. Safe-at-Home keeps kids in safe, stable home/school environments by negotiating clear custody agreements among family members.
We administer an annual Community Grants Program, funding vital public interest law programs for low-income families: mediation, language access services, and more.
The Volunteer Attorney Program serves low-income children and families with basic legal needs, like custody and housing. We also run a criminal record expungement clinic for job seekers and participate in the Wills for Heroes program. Here are details about LBA pro bono projects/opportunities.
The Law Suits donation program collects business clothing for the Lancaster County Council of Churches’ PA WorkWear clothing bank for job seekers.
We bring an annual holiday party to residents of the Transitional Living Center, with donated gifts for the children.
Our attorneys speak at public school events, appear on public radio programs, and present at community centers.
