From the Kentucky Post:
Legal Aid of the Bluegrass, based in Covington,Kentucky, has received the ABA's Hodson Award for Public Service. It was nominated for the Award by the Northern Kentucky Bar Association for the service it provides to low income people in family and domestic violence law, immigration, elder law and nursing home advocacy, consumer protection, housing assistance and public assistance. The nomination said the organization does so despite cuts from the government and a need to seek out private grants year-in and year-out.
The Hodson Award, named in honor of the distinguished public service career of the late Major General Kenneth J. Hodson, a former Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Army, and a founding member of the Division, recognizes sustained, outstanding performance or a specific and extraordinary service by a government or public sector law office
