In the second week of our spring Beyond the Plate series, we are taking a look at Teton County Access to Justice Center, the recipient of this week’s off-season fundraising effort. Access to Justice is a non-profit legal aid program that provides help to Jackson Hole community members struggling with civil legal matters.
Founded by local judges and attorneys in 2012, to provide free and reduced-fee legal help to low income residences in Teton County Access to Justice has helped about 75 low-income residents in the past fiscal year and provided self-help assistance with court forms and “limited legal advice” to about 150 community members of all income levels. Through their continued work and partnership with other local nonprofits like One22 and the Community Safety Network, Access to Justice provides vital legal assistance to individuals throughout our community.
Beyond purely legal help, Access to Justice hosts a law library, which is open to the public and accessible for those looking for court information in a convenient and safe place.
During the week of April 15, we invite you to dine out at Fine Dining restaurants and take advantage of great dining deals, all while raising money for Teton County Access to Justice Center.
