"The Lackawanna Bar Association works closely with Lackawanna Pro Bono and pays for some of its work. Both Lackawanna Pro Bono and North Penn Legal Services only accept clients who make 125-percent or less of federal poverty guidelines — or just under $23,000 a year for a single parent with two children. Lackawanna Pro Bono serves those people who, although they meet North Penn Legal Services' financial eligibility guidelines, North Penn can't serve due to conflicts of interest, funding regulations that bar them from handling certain matters and staffing shortages. People who wish to apply for services must first apply to and be rejected by North Penn Legal Services for one of the reasons stated above."
