"We cannot live only for ourselves.

A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow man."     

(Hermann Melville)

 As a non-profit organization, Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (LSEM) depends on the support of the community we all share to continue our mission to provide Justice For All to low-income people and the elderly in eastern Missouri.

However you can help, we can provide you with the opportunities to make a difference and the rewards that giving to others can provide!
