Kansas Legal Services (KLS) was born in 1964 during the War on Poverty, and became a statewide organization in 1977.

KLS provides legal services to alleviate low income Kansans’ poverty burdens. KLS has eleven legal services field offices and two mediation offices located across Kansas.

In 2019, the Board of Directors examined KLS’ mission statement and reaffirmed it with this simple statement:

Kansas Legal Services is legal aid in Kansas, providing equal access to justice for the most vulnerable Kansans.

KLS has progressively focused efforts on persons with special needs, domestic violence victims, crime victims, the homeless, children in foster care, consumers with housing and debt disputes, the elderly, those with disabling conditions, individuals seeking access to public benefits, and those seeking mediation services.
