Tennessee Legal Aid

Housing Assistance Programs

Legal aid can help you with apartment or rental home evictions or home foreclosures.

Public Assistance Programs

Legal aid can help people who have problems with welfare, Medicaid, Snap Food Stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Social Security public assistance programs.

Legal Aid Funding

Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
