Prairie State Legal Services, Inc.
November 22, 2010

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. As a volunteer lawyer on pro bono cases for individuals, I can also say that Prairie State makes the volunteer experience so much easier than it would otherwise be.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase state funding for legal services. Yes, even in Illinois.
