SAFETY

EVERYONE DESERVES TO LIVE FREE FROM ABUSE AND VIOLENCE

At Prairie State Legal Services, we empower survivors of domestic violence with the information and legal help they need to stop abuse and build safe, stable lives for themselves and their children.

We help older adults (60+) and people with disabilities end abuse and exploitation and find the safety and care that they need.

We work with immigrant victims of violence and trafficking to secure relief for individuals eligible for lawful status or U.S. citizenship, with the aim of improving their economic stability, physical safety, and overall well-being. We focus our services on survivors of abuse and violent crime.
