Legal Action of Wisconsin worked with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections in creating a project to help inmates who are nearing their release from incarceration. Legal Action works with certain inmates—identified by the Department as disabled—to help them get disability benefits as soon as possible upon release.
This helps stabilize the lives of these former inmates. It can also save the Department of Corrections money due to reduced recidivism.
Legal Action of Wisconsin provides free civil legal services for low-income people.
