About the Organization
The Legal Aid Society represents low-income residents of Cook County who are victims of domestic violence, seniors who are victims of abuse and/or financial exploitation or are raising grandchildren, human trafficking victims, and individuals who need help with housing and/or consumer issues. Social services, financial support and financial literacy classes are also available through seven community centers operated by our parent organization, Metropolitan Family Services.
