Increased funding in 2016-2017 will greatly expand the number of people LSHV is able to serve. Thank you to our long-time supporters, the Dyson Foundation and Oversight Board for Judiciary Civil Legal Services in New York for their continued investment in our efforts to provide "Justice for All."

Dyson Foundation Funding
Thank you to the Dyson Foundation for awarding us a generous two-year, $225,000 grant for the support of our work in Dutchess, Orange and Ulster counties! The Dyson Foundation’s commitment over the next two years will enable Legal Services of the Hudson Valley’s attorneys to assist poor, low-income, disabled and/or vulnerable individuals and families in hearings, negotiations and court proceedings across a wide range of urgent legal needs.
Oversight Board Funding
LSHV has been awarded more than $4,950,000 by the Oversight Board for Judiciary Civil Legal Services in New York for 2016-2017. This is a substantial increase over past awards, and will allow Legal Services of the Hudson Valley to provide free civil legal services to so many more of our neighbors facing crisis affecting basic needs like housing eviction or domestic violence.
