A Message from LSC's Board Chair, John G. Levi
LSC and its 132 grantees in every state across the country assist the nation’s 1.7 million vets eligible for LSC-funded services with these and many other civil legal issues.
Among our initiatives: launching in 2010 StatesideLegal.org, the first national website focused on helping veterans and military families; providing on-site legal help at veterans’ centers; establishing medical-legal partnerships with veterans’ health centers; operating legal hotlines for veterans; taking part in Stand Down events for homeless veterans; organizing pro bono assistance; and other outreach and advocacy programs.
LSC and its grantees stand with our veterans every day, and on this day, join all Americans in saluting their service.
