Justice works to root out the inequities that keep people in poverty.

Communities Need Civil Legal Aid

When people face legal challenges that can risk their safety, quality of life, or well-being, legal aid intervenes—preventing them from falling deeper into poverty, and providing them with a second chance.

We know that justice works! Our advocacy is life-changing. Civil legal aid removes barriers to opportunity, empowers individuals and families, and provides stability that our clients need to enjoy greater engagement in their communities.

The Justice Works! Campaign is a comprehensive three-year effort to raise the critical funds needed to sustain and grow our programs. Support for this campaign will fund program-wide operating costs and special programs like our Veterans Services.

The complex issues we help solve:

  • Protecting seniors from scam artists and abusive family members 
  • Advocating for the legal rights of children in foster care 
  • Ensuring domestic violence survivors have the legal protections they need
  • Giving veterans access to mental and physical health benefits
  • and much more!
