Legal Aid Partners with United Way of Logan County to Offer Tornado Relief Assistance


When a deadly EF-3 tornado tore through Logan County in early March, it left community members in disarray.

The damage stretched across multiple neighborhoods, including numerous mobile home parks, leaving hundreds of homes and neighborhoods destroyed in its wake.

Community partners, including Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE), Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Inc. (LAWO), and the United Way of Logan County, have been consistently working on a grassroots level to address the needs of Logan County residents, including information about legal rights for survivors of natural disasters.

The three organizations will host a free legal information Know Your Rights session.

The event takes place on Thursday, April 25, at 3:30 p.m. at Lulu’s on the Lake, 156 E. Main in Russells Point.

“We will be sharing free legal information for survivors who were impacted by the catastrophic tornado last month,” said ABLE Attorney Kristina Coen. “Topics include insurance rights, tenant rights, housing rights for mobile homeowners, and other advocacy efforts and resources available.”

The Know Your Rights event is free to attend and no registration is required.

To see if you may qualify for legal assistance, contact the Legal Aid Line at (888) 534-1432.
