Bar Foundation News: Building on a Promise

By:


“Nearly 13% of children under age five live in poverty [in New Hampshire]. Children from birth to age four account for 1/3 of all children receiving food stamps. Elementary school students account for more than 1/2 of all homeless children reported by the Department of Education.” (Kids Count NH Databook 2007)


When the powerful take a stand for the powerless, sometimes a home is saved, a child protected, an elderly person comforted, or a poor person vindicated. By virtue of the profession, lawyers often yield the power necessary to secure the protections guaranteed by law. 
         

For 30 years, the New Hampshire Bar Foundation’s promise has been to support the services of lawyers who protect the civil legal rights of those struggling to overcome poverty, abuse, and discrimination. Over the years, educational programs about the law and justice system have also grown as an effective means of helping people help themselves. We support them, too.

           

Look in the New Hampshire Bar Foundation 2007 Annual Report to learn how your colleagues took a stand to support equal access to the justice system this past year. You can help thousands more than you could ever imagine. It’s simple. Every gift you make to the New Hampshire Bar Foundation means someone less fortunate will benefit. You can count on it.
