Adopt-A-Neighborhood Project Overview

 Adopt-A-Neighborhood is a two-year collaborative project between Legal Aid of Western Missouri (LAWMO), five participating law firms and five Kansas City neighborhoods. Our Mission is to “Utilize volunteer attorneys to provide free legal services in targeted urban neighborhoods to support residents and empower neighborhood organizations.”

It is our goal that through the Adopt-A-Neighborhood project, we can assist urban core communities address quality of life concerns by providing high-quality legal service to qualifying individuals, neighborhood associations and local non-profit organizations that serve the neighborhoods. Some of these legal services may include preparing real-estate and beneficiary deeds, incorporating for-profit and non-profit entities, preparing estate planning documents, negotiating contracts and bringing actions to acquire abandoned properties.

Thank you for your commitment to Kansas City’s neighborhoods and to ensuring justice for all. We look forward to working together over the coming months and years. We will follow up with more specific project information as the project continues. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions by email or telephone at 816-474-9868.
