Money Challenges for Legal Aid The law firm for the poor, Legal Aid, has found itself short of cash after big reductions in federal funding and other income sources. That means steep cuts at a time when demand for legal help from the poor for evictions, foreclosures and other cases is growing. Thursday on The Sound of Ideas, we'll find out how two local Legal Aid programs serving our region, and local law firms, are responding. Join us Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
