Learn how Legal Aid Society of Orange County provides free legal aid services to the growing homeless population living at the Santa Ana Civic Center.
What would you do if your child was sick with a life threatening disorder? What if after years of research, treatment, and doctors’ visits, there seemed to be no cure? What if, by a miracle, a doctor on the other side of the country said he would operate on your son and greatly improve his quality of life? What if your insurance company denied coverage for the medical transportation needed to take your son to see this doctor? Learn how the Legal Aid Society of Orange County helped a mother overcome her battle with big insurance to get her son the life threatening procedure he needed.
I created a series at the Legal Aid Society of Orange County called “In their own words,” which showcases firsthand accounts, experiences, and stories from Legal Aid Society attorneys, staff, and volunteers who provide free legal aid services to our community’s most vulnerable populations.
This series is aimed at showcasing not only the impact these services have on the clients they serve, but also the profound impact these cases and clients have on the attorneys professionally and personally.
