Lone Star Legal Aid is one of a number of organizations that support www.TexasLawHelp.org. We post our community education materials on that site as a public service along with other legal aid groups throughout Texas. There are legal resources, forms, videos, and more.

Disaster Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer to help Texans recover from disasters, like Texas Winter Storm Uri, by visiting the statewide Texas Disaster Legal Help portal. Thanks to the generous support of the Legal Services Corporation, three Texas grantees partnered to develop the portal. This portal allows licensed attorneys throughout the State of Texas to review cases from all three organizations. The portal also connects volunteers to carefully tailored educational and training materials so they can learn about the different laws impacting Texans during a disaster. Volunteers can also take advantage of the site’s “chat” room to ask questions of mentors at our agencies.
