Non-Legal Resources

Many people with legal problems need other types of non-legal help as well. The resources listed on this site provide a wide range of aid and information to people in need. They are broken down into three categories: Emergency Resources, Aid and Services, and Information Only. Some of the links will take you away from LSNJ's website, and you will access an external website that LSNJ does not control. LSNJ cannot attest to the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of the information provided by these outside links. Linking to a website does not constitute an endorsement of any of the products or information presented on the site by LSNJ or any of its employees.
