The Tarrant County Bar Foundation (Bar Foundation) is a charitable organization formed under the auspices of the Tarrant County Bar Association (Bar Association). The Bar Foundation was established in 1997 to support, promote, and encourage activities for the furtherance of justice and legal education.
The Bar Foundation's projects include providing education to the public about their rights and responsibilities under the law through projects like LegalLine, the Elder Law Handbook, and the People's Law School.
The Bar Foundation also endeavors to provide free legal assistance and education to veterans, the indigent, and working poor by connecting them with volunteers from the legal community. With support from the Bar Association, the Bar Foundation supports two pro bono legal programs: Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans - Tarrant County Chapter (TLTV) and Tarrant County Volunteer Attorney Services (TVAS). TLTV and TVAS have held free legal clinics at community organizations throughout Tarrant County, and their volunteers have assisted hundreds of low income individuals with free legal advice or information.
The Tarrant County Bar Foundation's current agency needs are:
1. Continued support of a number of programs that benefit the community through the efforts of the Bar Association's volunteers, including LegalLine, the Elder Law Handbook, and the People's Law School.
2. The continued support of the Bar Foundation's two pro bono programs: Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans - Tarrant County Chapter (TLTV) and Tarrant County Volunteer Attorney Services (TVAS). Specifically, the Bar Foundation seeks funds to cover costs for staff support, technology improvements, and the general overhead costs associated with the operation of the two programs.
