Provide An Answer to the Question
of Equal Justice for All in Wisconsin
For over 500,000
low-income Wisconsin citizens, legal services programs are a source
of hope and of justice. Legal services programs are the dividing line
between safety and domestic abuse, shelter and homelessness, and health
to Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund, Inc helps deliver legal services to over 20,000
low-income Wisconsinites. Kelly is one of those people. Her husband attacked her
with a knife, inflicting critical neck and head wounds. A legal services program,
working closely with the domestic violence shelter, helped Kelly become safe,
gain sole custody of her children, and get a divorce. Her ex-husband was convicted
of attempted first-degree intentional homicide and is serving a long prison sentence.
