The Smith County Bar Foundation exists to further justice and the rule of law in Smith County, Texas by educating and serving its citizens.

The Foundation accomplishes these goals by: establishing programs designed to educate members of the general public as to their legal rights and responsibilities; promoting and facilitating the exercise of the legal rights of the poor; and serving the community through programs designed to assist those affected by the justice system.
