Review for Prairie State Legal Services, Inc., Rockford, IL, USA
Prairie State is an excellent legal services organization that is an invaluable part of many communities in Central Illinois. Without Prairie State, untold numbers of low-income people in Illinois would be unable to access critical legal services. Prairie State accomplishes a lot with very limited resources. Denise Conklin (and Lisa Wilson before her) and Sandy Crow and all of the staff at Prairie State in Peoria accomplish a tremendous amount of good. I have been involved in numerous initiatives with Prairie State over the last 5 years and can attest to the quality and value of their contributions.
