APPLYING FOR LEGAL REPRESENTATION
The Moran Center’s services are free to qualifying individuals. Our Help Desk at the Skokie Courthouse serves any individual with a Cook County criminal record. For most other programs, eligible participants are (1) 26 or younger (or a parent of someone 26 or younger), (2) at or below 80% of poverty as determined by HUD, and (3) reside within the City of Evanston or attend school in Evanston. Please refer to our individual programs to determine specific eligibility requirements.
Our online application* is available 24/7.
