Mid-Missouri Legal Services Creates Disaster Document Checklist

Mid-Missouri Legal Services Corporation (MMLS) created the Disaster Document Checklist to assist Missourians in preparing for disasters.  Prompted by the recent tornado in Joplin, Missouri and flooding occurring across the state, MMLS Staff Attorneys constructed the Checklist in an effort to educate Mid-Missourians about important documents that are difficult or impossible to replace following a disaster.  By reviewing the Disaster Document Checklist, individuals can protect important personal information from being destroyed.

MMLS is one of four nonprofit Missouri Legal Services programs funded by Legal Services Corporation, promoting equal access to justice.  Since 1978, MMLS has addressed the low-income needs of central Missourians by providing legal services to those who would otherwise face the legal system alone.  To meet the needs of the 11 county service region, MMLS developed an uncontested divorce clinic and partnered with the University of Missouri School Of Law to implement a housing clinic.  Current initiatives include a mentoring program for young attorneys as well as bankruptcy and adult guardianship projects.
