MONROE, La. (KNOE) - The Louisiana Bar Foundation has awarded more that $12 million in grants to assist women, children, the elderly, people with disabilities, newly unemployed people, and those with civil legal aid issues facing the loss of their homes.

The LBF is serving the regions poorest citizens by partnering up with local nonprofit civil legal aid organizations.

LBF President, Deidre Deculus Robert, said that this support is needed.
