In the face of funding challenges, officials from the Ohio Legal Assistance Foundation have said the state’s legal aids have continued to provide essential, life-changing legal help to those in need through volunteer pro bono attorneys.

The reported figure, 69 percent, is a slight increase from the 2012 data.
