The explosive growth of Silicon Valley has left some members of our community behind. Even worse, many long-time residents are being displaced as the cost of living sky-rockets.
Barriers to Opportunity
A variety of circumstances, including not speaking English; being disabled or elderly; or living on a limited income, creates barriers to opportunity.
A Complex Legal System
The U.S. legal system is difficult to navigate alone. Some people have the resources and know-how to hire the legal help they need while others do not.
Ensuring Access to Justice
We use the law as a tool for change in matters dealing with housing, physical or mental health, and children and youth to ensure everyone has a fair shot regardless of their circumstances.
Addressing Systemic Inequalities
We solve the urgent problems of individuals and families on a day-to-day basis, while advocating for policy changes that put long-term solutions in place.
Inventive Problem Solving
Our approach ranges from direct advocacy, to social work help, to litigation; and we often rely on our deep, long-standing partnerships with other organizations to find the best solution for each client.
You can ensure access to justice for thousands of low-income families facing life-changing legal issues.
