Through a panel of Ohio certified attorneys working on a reduced fee basis, ODVN supports eligible survivors whose income is at or below 225% of the federal poverty line. Lawyers serve a variety of legal needs, including divorce, parental leave, protection orders, immigration, housing, employment, and other matters. Survivors are selected and referred by lawyers trained in a range of programs, including domestic violence shelters and programs, anti-poverty organizations, rape counseling centers, and culturally specific programs in Ohio. ODVN also conducts outreach activities to help marginalized survivors who are incarcerated, returning from prison, homeless and runaway youth, and low-income women of color. Our legal program is funded by a variety of private and public sources.
ODVN`s legal programme also supports female prisoners who are victims of violence through a variety of strategies, including clemency, probation education, and self-help manuals for women in prison. These efforts were generously funded by the Ohio State Bar Foundation. For legal assistance, please contact your local domestic violence programme or rape centre.
