Who we help


We work with clients who have been arrested in New York City, and whose bail has been set by the court. The Liberty Fund may post bail if the client:


  • Has had bail set at $2000 or less and is financially unable to post bail
  • Has been assessed as an appropriate client by a Liberty Fund Bail Associate
  • Agrees to participate in the Liberty Fund’s client needs interview process  
  • Has been charged with a misdemeanor (though certain charges/cases will automatically exclude clients from The Liberty Fund’s services)



Our Services


Bail Procedures


The Liberty Fund is able to post bail on behalf of individuals that meet the requirements set forth by the federal and state laws of New York concerning charitable bail funds.  These criteria are set forth in the previous section entitled “Who are our clients?”



After Bail


After the Liberty Fund posts bail for a client, the client will submit to an interview with a bail bond associate.  This interview will include questions that are included in the risk assessment as well as additional questions. This interview will aid in determining what services might be helpful to the client.  The Liberty Fund has a library of resources available to clients. These resources include but are not limited to the following areas:


  • Housing
  • Substance Abuse
  • Mental Health
  • Education
  • Immigration
  • Domestic Violence
  • Entitlements


These resources and services are voluntary and may be used at the client’s own discretion.


The Liberty Fund will maintain some contact with the clients following the posting of bail.  This contact will include contacting clients with reminders of their court dates. This reminder will be done at least two times prior to the client’s court date including the day before the date.  The client may consent to the Liberty Fund contacting another party such as a friend or family member with reminders of court dates.
