Feature Story: Marking 40 Years of Service
The end of 2009 comes with many milestones for Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA). Not only are we celebrating having helped another 20,000 low-income Texans with their legal issues, but TRLA is marking forty years of helping the poor find justice in the legal system.
From our early days in 1970 to today, TRLA has seen the faces of thousands of domestic violence victims who need our help to save their lives. We have helped thousands of residents with landlords who refuse to fix severely damaged homes, are at risk of being homeless, or are facing foreclosure.We have seen hundreds of parents struggling to find their children who have been taken across international borders, helped countless children subjected to abuse in federal detention centers, and empowered farmworkers to stand up against abusive employers. As we celebrate forty years of service, we once again start planning for the future.
