25 Years

Solving Legal Problems, Impacting the Community, Changing Lives.

86% of low-income Americans with legal needs receive inadequate or no legal services.

That means people with no legal training have to walk into courtrooms alone to fight for their homes, children, livelihoods, and basic rights. We at the Community Legal Center believe everyone deserves access to justice regardless of their circumstances.

Join us as we celebrate our silver anniversary.
