Give Help

Our service model works through the generosity of our friends and partners who understand the importance of social justice.

Our services are free to the majority of our clients because of the support we receive from charitable foundations, government contracts, gifts from law firms and corporations, and contributions from individual community members.

Together, we work to elevate the condition of the most vulnerable members of our community, and advocate for lasting change that supports and benefits everyone. Please join us!

The financial support that we receive from a wide range of individual and institutional partners has enabled us to grow and increase the breadth and depth of the services we provide to our community. You can be confident that as a result of your contribution, a community member will receive life changing legal services.
