The Marshall County Court System announce Wednesday morning the installation of a free, public Indiana Legal Help Kiosk now located on the basement floor of the courthouse.
Indiana Legal Help kiosks provide a way for Hoosiers to easily access IndianaLegalHelp.org, an Indiana Bar Foundation program connecting Hoosiers to legal resources and services. The Indiana Legal Help website, which has seen over one million visits since its launch, includes legal forms, instructional videos, referrals to free and low-cost legal services, and a statewide calendar of free legal advice clinics. The Indiana Legal Help kiosks will initially focus on serving Hoosiers facing eviction or housing instability and will expand to include other legal topics later next year. The ADA-accessible kiosk has a printer and scanner.
The Indiana Legal Help Kiosk is part of an initiative to place 120 kiosks in communities around the state. This opportunity is the result of a partnership between the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and the Indiana Bar Foundation to increase housing stability legal services using federal funds made available through the Emergency Rental Assistance 2 Program.
The Indiana Legal Help Kiosk will be available to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
For housing and other legal needs, you can always check out the legal resources available at IndianaLegalHelp.org.
