Nonprofit Turns Some Away

Brenda Hall had a home for her and the four grandchildren to spend Christmas in because of help from the nonprofit group that provides civil legal aid to residents across the region. “It’s been a godsend,” the 56-year-old said of Legal Aid of the Bluegrass. “It would have been really hard to move right before Christmas.” The group went to court last week to stop the eviction of Hall and the grandchildren she raises. The landlord claimed she violated her lease because her grandson, who is an honor student, didn’t get along with a neighbor’s child.
