NHBF History |
New Hampshire Bar Foundation funding reaches deep into communities statewide to assist with educational programs,
direct legal services, and charitable projects aimed at meeting the law-related needs of the public and the profession.
By funding legal aid organizations, more than 25,000 residents receive free or low-cost civil legal services every year in New Hampshire.
The nonprofit organizations we fund help the most vulnerable members in our communities, including:
- Abused, neglected and otherwise disadvantaged children
- Women and children victimized by domestic or sexual violence
- Elderly victims of consumer fraud and other abuse
- Immigrants trying to understand their rights and responsibilities
- Disabled people fighting for inclusion and independence
- Low-income families struggling to protect their right to safe housing and fight unlawful evictions
- Victims of predatory lending and other abusive practices
Through the Bar Foundation's funding of educational programs, our youth learn to understand the law and the justice system,
thus ensuring another generation of socially responsible citizens.
Statewide lectures and workshops offered by our grantees explain legal processes or changes in the law, thus
increasing public understanding.
Across a broad spectrum of programs, the law and the justice system are instrumental in creating a better
future for us all.
