The Wabash Valley Survivors Legal Assistance program provides legal support to survivors of domestic violence who cannot afford an attorney. We provide legal advice, legal assistance, and in some cases legal representation for people experiencing domestic violence. We partner with the Terre Haute-based Council on Domestic Abuse (CODA), Clay County Family Support Services, and other local domestic violence resources. We also do some direct intake.
To be eligible for assistance, your case must be located in Vigo, Clay, or Sullivan County. Currently the best way to get advice and apply for services is to work with CODA or Clay County Family Support Services, or attend the Counsel in the Court family law clinic held every 1st and 3rd Friday outside Superior Court II on the third floor of the Vigo County Courthouse. People with Clay and Sullivan cases are also welcome there.
If you cannot work with CODA or Clay FSS or attend the Counsel in the Court clinic, contact us to schedule an intake at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wabash Valley SLA is a project of the District 10 Pro Bono Project, funded through the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). Wabash Valley SLA and District 10 Pro Bono can currently only meet the need of a fraction of the people who qualify for our services. If you would like to support Wabash Valley Survivors Legal Assistance specifically, you can donate to D10 here and write in the “Notes” section that you would like your donation to go to SLA. In many cases, timely legal assistance is a decisive factor in a person suffering domestic abuse with children being able to leave! You donation will make an actual difference in terms of more hours to help another client!
