Help Legal Aid

Mitigate COVID’s Impact


Tabitha Hodge was furloughed from her job due to the COVID shutdown when she was seven and half months pregnant. Suddenly, unable to pay her mortgage or feed her children, Tabitha was at risk of becoming homeless.

Our Medical-Legal Partner, Good Samaritan, referred her to Legal Aid. Our attorneys secured emergency mortgage assistance funds and helped Tabitha obtain a mortgage forbearance. Then, they helped her apply for crucial unemployment, SNAP, childcare, and Medicaid benefits. Thanks to their efforts, Tabitha and her children were able to welcome the new baby while they remained safe, housed, and fed.

Your support will sustain our work to prevent foreclosures and evictions as well as secure vital benefits for families affected by the pandemic.

Consider using your Traditional IRA to make an Annual Charitable Gift.

If you are 70½ or older, this is a good opportunity to use an asset that otherwise would be taxed if you took a distribution.

Please direct the IRA administrator to make the transfer directly from your IRA to Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati to avoid any tax issues.

Making the IRA charitable rollover gift to Legal Aid will count towards your minimum distribution for the year from the IRA.  But, it won’t count as income on your tax return.
