The campaign is an effort to bring together New Hampshire’s business, legal and philanthropic communities to support two organizations, the Legal Advice and Referral Center and NH Legal Assistance.

These two organizations serve the needs of those who are unable to afford the relatively high cost of legal services required to be represented in the court system. The campaign promotes awareness of civil legal aid, which is non-criminal-case legal aid for people who have nowhere else to obtain representation. NH Legal Assistance provides that kind of assistance through offices located at various locations in New Hampshire, while the Legal Advice and Referral Center refers those in need to volunteer private attorneys willing to take on such assignments.
