Our Programs

  • Each program unit represents Individual Clients.

  • Works on changing policy to solve problems that affect many of our clients in the community.

  • Provides legal education to clients, staff at community-based agencies, advocates, and the community.


Ensuring that everyone can choose a safe, affordable place to live

Our Housing program works to ensure that all people may freely choose a place to live without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital status, source of income, disability, operation of a home daycare, or whether they have children in their family.

(LEGAL Advocates for Children & Youth or LACY)

Advancing the rights of youth to lead healthy, productive lives

Our Children & Youth program advances the legal rights of children and youth, empowering them to lead healthy and productive lives. We listen to, advise, and advocate for disadvantaged children and youth to ensure their voices are heard and their rights are protected.

HEALTH/Mental Health

Empowering people with mental health disabilities to live more securely and removing legal barriers to health stability

Our Health/Mental Health program empowers people with mental health and developmental disabilities to live more independent, secure, and satisfying lives through the enforcement of their legal rights and the advancement of their social and economic well-being. We also work to stabilize the lives of individuals with chronic or life threatening health conditions by providing comprehensive legal services regarding income, healthcare benefits, housing rights, debtor relief, disability discrimination, and estate planning.
