Our Mission


How We Help

Overcoming the many problems associated with poverty requires being able to access economic, social and legal justice. Understanding what legal rights and social services assistance is available can mean the difference between progress and falling deeper into poverty or escalating a crisis. Our advocates work with clients to design an individualized, practical action plan to help them move forward.
