Supporting Neighborhood Transformation

Our new video tells the story of legal aid and Cleveland Owns, an incubator for collective ownership working in the Hough and Detroit Shoreway neighborhoods. Members of the Hough Block Club (the “BC”) rely on legal aid’s counsel and representation to develop a local solar energy project, which will generate clean energy and wealth for residents.

Our Mission

The Ohio Access to Justice Foundation is committed to improving access to justice and ensuring that legal aid societies and other resources, programs, and services address the unmet civil legal needs of low-income and underserved Ohioans.




Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio Legal Help assisted more than 310,000 users who faced serious issues such as eviction and food instability. This shows the vital role of trusted, 24/7 online legal assistance during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

Our Justice for All Fellowship Application is now open! Join our Zoom Q&A session on April 19 to learn more about this exciting opportunity to address the unmet civil legal needs of low-income Ohioans.
