Everyone has basic needs - from stable housing to medical treatment to a loving family.
Sometimes, legal problems prevent vulnerable people from meeting those basic needs. When that happens, a good lawyer can make all the difference in keeping people safe, healthy, and free of poverty.
CLS helps low-income people by using our legal skills to help clients, their families, and their communities solve urgent life problems and meet their basic needs.
We focus on helping our clients with stable housing; financial security; physical safety; health and medical care; strong family relationships; education; and dignity and personal autonomy.
