New Court Help Connect Program Launching in Rural Montana

MLSA is excited to announce a new self-help program coming to rural communities throughout the state! Developed in conjunction with the Montana Court Help Program and the Office of the Court Administrator, Court Help Connect places computer workstations at libraries and community centers starting in Anaconda and Dillon. The workstations, which include a laptop, printer, and mobile cart, are part of a renewed effort to provide legal services to rural Montanans who cannot reach a self-help law center or MLSA office. Through these workstations, individuals will be able to video chat with an a trained staff member and receive assistance with legal forms and information, just as they would if they had an appointment in-person with a Court Help Program AmeriCorps.
