Legal Action of Wisconsin Reentry Legal Services Program
Legal Action of Wisconsin is a non-profit law firm that provides free legal services to low-income people in Wisconsin. Their Reentry Legal Services Program helps get disability benefits and health insurance to people who are disabled when they are coming out of prison. The program represents incarcerated people as they approach their release from prison. They assist in applying for disability, health care and other public benefits. First, they seek to increase their clients’ economic stability, provide them with access to health care, and reduce homelessness, relapses of criminal behavior and other negative outcomes. The Legal Action of Wisconsin receives referrals through the Wisconsin Department of Corrections and works with clients before and after their release into the community. They assist many prisoners in prison who are survivors of trauma or crime. The Reentry Legal Services Program aims to empower formerly incarcerated people and give them a path forward as they build a stable life outside prison.
