Humanitarian Crisis: The state of Texas' lone children

 Thousands of children in Texas face separation from family, a culture and language they do not know and frightening legal action. Texas legal aid providers are overwhelmed with a staggering increase in legal need. These lawyers are unable to do more and must have help!

 

Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program

The Texas Access to Justice Foundation administers the Texas Student Loan Repayment Assistance Program (SLRAP). The Texas Access to Justice Commission created the program in 2003 to assist attorneys who choose to pursue careers in legal aid in Texas. Low salaries coupled with high student loan debt make it difficult or impossible for lawyers to accept employment at legal aid or stay in those jobs long term. The Texas SLRAP is a critical part of increasing access to justice for low income individuals.
