Please Help Legal Aid Remove Barriers to Family Stability

Our Kinship Care team helps relatives and family friends who are assuming custody of children no longer in their parents’ care. These “kinship caregivers” often need legal help to stabilize custody, get children enrolled in school, obtain income benefits, or address landlord-tenant problems to establish a welcoming home.

We also assist grandparents and other relatives who are filing on their own for changes in custody or visitation at the new Juvenile Court Custody and Companionship Clinic. Located at 800 Broadway in downtown Cincinnati, the Clinic is open Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.

Your generous financial support will help Legal Aid assist more families and kinship caregivers to maintain a safe, stable environment for the children in their care.

Consider using your Traditional IRA to make an Annual Charitable Gift.

If you are 70½ or older, this is a good opportunity to use an asset that otherwise would be taxed if you took a distribution.

Please direct the IRA administrator to make the transfer directly from your IRA to Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati to avoid any tax issues.

Making the IRA charitable rollover gift to Legal Aid will count towards your minimum distribution for the year from the IRA.  But, it won’t count as income on your tax return.
