The legal system can be overwhelming

If you would like some help with a potential or existing court matter, the first step is to talk with a Hope & Justice Project court advocate. Once she has a better understanding of your situation, she can help you decide what your next steps may be. An advocate may be able to help you file a complaint with the court (example: complaint for Protection from Abuse), go to the courthouse with you, and/or connect you with an attorney.

Social Service Advocacy

In Aroostook County, resources are limited and it can be challenging to know where to turn when times are tough. At Hope & Justice Project, we will help point you in the right direction for services for financial assistance, mental health/ substance abuse counseling, or anything else that you may need assistance with.
